In spite of this "problem", I may still take my chances and order one... hopefully I'll get lucky and my copy won't suffer from this misinterpretation.

Glad to learn that the "first problem" with the K-30 is a non-issue.
The lower part of the camera looks nothing like submerged. I had to try hard to interpret the image the wrong way.

And yes, this thread should be closed and forgotten.
Pretty much this, never even noticed it could look like it was being dunked!

I have high hopes for this camera, fingers crossed

And I really don't understand the Pentaxian community. We're so accustomed to being disappointed that when Pentax really brings us a home run we have to make things up to worry about.
I agree, we're bitching so much for no good reason that one would think we're all Canadians

p.s. I am Canadian, so I can say that !

I never did consider that it was a photo on its side... but when I first saw it I immediately thought that it was manipulated - totally didn't look like a camera taking a dunk. I'm sure a lot of people were similar too.

That said since its only a photo rotated 90 degrees, there's nothing really misleading about it is there? Since its not like a case of underhanded or heavy Photoshopping.
