But most of the pentax primes are pretty resistant to wet weather ... That would be a heresay... I doubt most lenses are not too bad with wet weather as long as they are not dipped into water tanks ...

Most of the lenses are not sand proof. I read these claims in a website with a huge table listing all pentax lenses on the net before
