Does a K-3 II support a memory card of 64 GB or more?

With my previous K20D I experienced the problem, that memory cards of 64 GB could not be used. In the K-3 II manual I could not find any notice about any limitations. Neither did I in this forum. Can I use a 64 GB card? Do I have to prepare anything for it? I own the K-3 II now for 2 weeks.

Yes those are supported. Any SDXC card will work.

I've used 64GB Transcend SDXC R95 cards in the K-3 without incident. Very fast cards.
