K-01 video quality and maximum ISO

Because of the K-01 getting cheaper and cheaper I thought about buying one as an addition to my K-5 for filming. Sure, the K-5 has the better image because of less compression but the K-01 has manual controls and 60fps at 720p.

I wanted to see some samples but didn't find anything decent, especially concerning 60fps. Could someone upload some RAW video files of his k-01 at 24fps & 60fps in different light situations? Another question is: What is the maximum ISO in video mode?

Thank you in advance!

a bit late but maximum (usable) would be 1600. 3200 is becoming too noisy

yep, i'm quite impressed by your video at 3200.
I attached one as well. a bit hard to judge i think, but look at the cushions and the wooden floor at the beginning of the sequence. the youtube compression actually hides it a bit but it is very noisy. the 1st sequence is 3200, the 2nd (same shot) is 1600.

so, i was looking at sthing darker in your video as well, the cello has a bit the same colour & texture as my wooden floor. but no, not much noise as far i can see.
thus the lens choice make a difference? indoor, outdoor? don't know what i am missing here...
