Pentax K3 weather sealing

A lot of people that haven't seen Pentax cameras in the wild may wonder just what weather sealing actually means and you only seem to hear when someone has a problem but this is the way I've been using my K-10D, K-7 and now K-3 camera for years without any problems ever.

PS the cell phone pic sucks but thats why I use a real camera

After awhile you take it for granted. A guy on a facebook photography group I'm in was complaining about his new long lens performing sluggishly in cold weather. He has a Sony SLT-A99 and it's only rated down to 32 degrees F or 0 degrees C. My K-30 worked just fine in the cold weather after sitting in the car at -10 F a couple days ago.
