K20D and memory card

Will the K20D work properly with an 8gb memory card?

Thanks - good to know.
I only ask because the manual (page 266) only shows the number of shots up to a 4gb card so I wasn't sure.

Funny, i was just looking at this chart in the manual last night and it struck me that is says that any given card can store an equal amount of RAW images regardless of whether they are saved as PEF or DNG?

Now that i'm thinking about it, did is read it right? And is this true? My understanding was that the DNG (uncompressed) files were much larger and therefore the card would hold less of them...

The camera is a little stupid when it comes to PEF vs DNG. It reports the remaining shots as roughly equal depending on the settings, but in reality, you can fit about 40% more PEF files than DNG.

Interesting, so if you're shooting PEFs the remaining shot counter is actually incorrect? Does that mean in theory you can get down to zero shots remaining with space still on your card? Just curious...
