Absolutely not everybody

I own a K1-II and wouldn't go back to APS-C . I really love this FF camera and it's beautiful pictures and superb performance. Upgraded my DA* 60-250 to FF and love the performance of this beautiful lens in combination with the K1-II.

Not a bad word of course about APS-C and the flag-ship K3-III, but i stick to my FF camera.

I had to take some pictures of workers in company which is making clothes and at that time my K-1 was couped with D-FA* 70-200 2.8 lens and K-3 with D-FA* 50 1.4. I was thinking to just swap lenses and go with K-1 and 50 as it is wider but laziness took over and I picked up K-3 with 50mm. Still came home with just astonishing results, it was like 75mm, near to 85, took very pleasing photos. But yes, no matter what kind of lens you put in front of its sensor, K-1 will be always better than K-3 in terms of image quality, dynamic range etc...

As the old curse goes: May you have a winning lawsuit.

As a lawyer (crim law) I get asked all the time if client can sue this witness or that agency. Sure, I tell them, you can sue anyone for anything. Doesn't mean you will win.

1 can I sue

2 can I win

In the 50+ years I have been shooting, I have never had water get into one of my cameras. Weather Sealed or not. Just think about what you are doing.
This ^ ^ ^ is my personal experience as well in the very damp Pacific Northwest doing many and varied outdoor activities under all weather conditions. That said, it is quite possible that the unthinkable might have happened with any of my cameras over the years, regardless of my efforts to avoid such and my sympathy extends to anyone enduring that sort of loss.

You say last, does that mean it got wet and quit working?

My K-30 is now my camera that I'll take out when it's really raining because I don't care that much, as it's a couple generations removed from my K-3 III, and older than the backup K-3 II. Paired with the 18-55 WR kit lens, not going to risk the 55-300 PLM.
