I'm sure I've seen video of Pentax demoing the K-5's weather sealing by pouring a bottle of water over the camera...

It is to bad those Pop Photo guys felt the need to mark out Pentax and k-7 on the body. It is too bad Herb Keppler isn't still with us. Not only would those not be marked out, there would be future article on the dismantling of the K-7 to see what made it tick. That was something he started in the glory days of Modern Photography.

Prototype that didn't make it into production

This could have been an early Marc Newson design effort that was ultimately perfected in the production K-01.
