pentax k50 underwater housing

i was wondering if anyone has any ideas for underwater housing for the k50?
i saw a post online about someone modifying an old sea and sea camera housing that was made for a sea and sea camera that happened to also have k mount lenses for either a k20 or k200. i was wondering if anyone knew of any nikon or canon dslrs that were similar size/shape enough to the k50 that they might fit a case because those companies have many options available. any other ideas would be appreciated too. i could go with a bag type if all else fails because the camera/lenses water resistance would probably thwart the problem of the bag failing enough to ruin most other brand cameras.

How deep are you looking to go?
I used a DiCAPac for my K-01 on a recent snorkeling trip. It was a pain to deal with, but the results were decent.

You either want an Ikelight or Sea and Sea hard case housing for any serious water works. I know that Ikelight use to make for the K-5 a housing, but have since discontinued it.
Bags are okay, but I would not trust one beyond 20 feet (5m) deep
