Pentax k-3 audio recording quality

Hello to happy owners of new Pentax K-3...
I have a question important for me...
Does anybody know what Sound quality, sample frequency and format is used in Pentax K-3 for recording?
I mainly interested to tis audio/sounds paramaters.
If anybody knows any specific info or can upload some short time files of recording it would really makes me happy.
Thanx a lot pentaxians...

Me too, though Pentax (oops, Ricoh!) seem to be reticent about disclosing such things. I discovered after purchase that K-5 does only 32kHz sampling (stupidly I'd assumed that nobody samples audio at less than 48kHz these days).

Probably best to just buy a Zoom H4 or similar, K-3 won't match that.

The K-3's .MOV files indicate that the sampling is at 48khz
