I would much rather be worried for myself, if I were in the same place that my camera ended up looking like that...

These same guys did something similar to the K-3. I believe their business is adventure tourism and that they offer photo tours. Wrong!

Pentax K-3 ? ?????????? ?????????? - ADV-Bulgaria

They are great Pentax fans.

Those guys should be getting a kick back from Ricoh to share that experiment and photos for official promotion.
Let's see anyone try that with a Hassy, Phase One or FF Nikon!

I hope they open that eyepiece up and get the water out. As stated here previously , there is no O ring to stop water from getting into the eyepiece.
