K-3 video bitrate

At moment I use K-5 for stills and Nex-5n for video, my intention was to replace both cameras with K-3 because my needs for video are not to intense but is from time to time necessary to make some short hd video interview or product showcase, some short reportage etc.

To this time nex is more than capable of making this kind of videos, but I would like to use only one system so pentax is my first choice because i have glass for it and I'm completely satisfied with image quality, durability and da* zooms and pentax prime lenses.

I almost buy K-3 but  I sow somewhere that pentax k-3 use 18mbps codec that produce soft results of videos and video quality is low even when shoot from tripod.

What are your experiences with K-3 videos and I anyone there that use K-3 for same need as I explained up in text.
