is red k30 camera weather sealed

I keep seeing that the black, white and blue K-30 cameras are weathersealed with no mention of the red K30 camera, please advise as I bought a bundle and want to know if it is indeed weathersealed or not.

Thanks,

Kim

The camera is, the lens isn't (unless it's the more expensive DA and not the DA L variant).

DA WR specifically! Most kits, like Adam said, are the DA L lenses that are not weather sealed.

No, what I meant is that the DA 18-55 WR is weather sealed, whereas the DA L 18-55mm is not. All DA* lenses are also weather sealed.
