K3 II jpeg/raw

I'm thinking of getting a K3 II and would like to know if the sensor shift will work with jpegs as well as raw.

Only just got mine, and I haven't had an opportunity to try to shoot a pixel shift resolution image yet, but have just had a look at the manual "high definition image output", page 60, and limitations, page 87, and see no reference to any requirement for raw or jpeg, so can only assume that either form of file can be used.
Hopefully this can be confirmed soon.

Though, at present, the RAW development of the full PS image is limited to the Pentax-supplied software that comes with the camera.

Thanks everybody, I'm not really into raw, so if sensor shift had not been available to jpeg's, I would have thought twice about the K3 II. Although I have more lenses that are FF than APSC ones, the Sigma 10-20, the 16-50 and the 55-300 get most use and the forthcoming FF camera will be too expensive for me. The K3 II price is about what I paid for my K5 and is good value.
