I bought a lens from that shop and from the shop manager seen in the video. In fact, he's quite a nice fellow. However, I personally would not have done that stunt!

Good sales gimmick for a small camera shop! Good on him if it pays off, he probably got the K1 for zero cost from pentax for the stunt.

Yet another incredibly stupid idiot. No doubt some equally foolish new K1 owners will see this, try a similar experiment, and not be so lucky.

Everybody knows weather resistant does not mean weather proof.
