Originally I would have said not important, but now that I have started stacking astro images from videos taken with my K3, I consider it very important. I plan to use it for planetary and moon photography and now I won't have to buy a separate planetary camera to do this.

I was taking photos of Saturn and the Moon through my telescope with the K-3 the past few evenings.  Because of Air turbulence distorting the image, I take a hundred or more pictures and stack the best ones to create a clearer image.  Using the K-3 at 8.3fps is nice, but a lot of wear on the shutter, with mirror vibration is more apparent when using a very long focal length of 2300mm as the lens.  So Video mode is the way to go for me.
