My pentax k3ii is worthless for video. How is the mark iii.

Wait for Dpreview to test it. I suspect that if you want nice 4K, you should look elsewhere.

There is crop and time limit in 4K. Question is, does it skip lines or oversamples? How bad is rolling shutter?

So far I have not seen any comparison with a modern APS-C camera.

I am not an expert on video. 4k will always be a downsample or a crop of the original sensor content, as the sensor has much higher resolution. I ask myself if the crop solution is much worse if your lens otuperforms the sensor - and having great Pentax lenses it should be no problem. Of course, you have that extra crop factor - and you would need a very good wide angle lens to get at least the view of a normal focal length magnification. However, you crop in the middle and get the best crop of any lens this way.
