I use a 32 GB card on a two week canoe trip..... and usually don't fill it. If memory serves me well it takes about 800 images to fill that card, and often more than one battery. The logistics of filling a 128 card blows me away. How many batteries. How much do you lose if a card fails? How much processing time when you get home? Tess uses a 64 BG card on her K-5, but has never come close to filling it. Only once on a 10 day trip have I ever filled a 32 GB card.

I can't imagine a newer camera like this having any problems with those and much larger ones.
Same here. Card support is the same as supporting the card specification for address space, file systems, etc. and the specification holds up to the max size. I don't remember any specific case of a Pentax dSLR model where there was a size incompatibility within a supported specification. There were models (e.g. K-7) where SDXC compatibility was added as a firmware revision and there was some resulting confusion and issues with some brands and/or transfer rates.
