Well, WR does mean water resistant, not water proof.
Like I said rain, not swimming. And I know WR is not waterproof, the fact is that water or moisture got in to ruin the monitor.

At high temperatures the air usually contains a lot of water and when it cools down again the water deposits on neighboring surfaces - it's the dew or fog you see in the morning.

So, when you are changing a lens at high surrounding temperatures, or pumping the air in via your lens, the moist air enters the camera body and when the camera cools down at a later moment the water condenses on its inner parts where it can cause havoc in the electronics.

As far as I know Pentax doesn't specify the maximum allowed relative humidity for the inside of their camera's, but it's certainly not 100%, when you get condensation. They are only giving a warning in the user manuals, in the Precautions section.

So, this effect has nothing to do with WR, it's a law of nature.
Thank you...
