Looks good Steve... What lens have you got there? Is it WR?

I took my K30 out into both the pouring rain and the blowing dust storm of the Negev desert when I was in Israel these past two weeks and it survived 100%. I even washed the camera of the dust by just taking it out into the heavy pouring rain and hail.

I recently took the K-30 with the 18-135 lens to Gala Yuzawa in Japan for some skiing.
It was quite heavy weather, snow was coming sideways and tough wind.
The pictures are not spectacular, since the sight was very limited, but anyhow I took a few shots just to check the weather resistant feature.

Here a few shots (sorry the blog is in German):

K-30 and lens are both doing fine, no harm done ;-)

I have the k30 with the 18-55 wr lens and i have had it out in rain (very heavy), sleat (typical scottish weather) and slow (Blizzard, again typical scottish weather) and sand so it is definatly weather sealed. one thing i would recomend is letting it dry off properly before you open any of the doors or change the lens
