Pentax K7 really is weather resistent

I tried the weather resistence of my K7 last weekend, and i can confirm, the camera is better weather resistent than the photographer

(really loved all those frightened faces around me when they saw my soaked camera )

I have similar shots, only from on a log flume ride, instead of watching it.

This was with my K20D and 16-50mm lens on Splash Mountain at Disney World. The ride was closed for rehab on our last trip so I didn't get a chance to try it with the K-7 but I'm sure it'll do fine - we'll be back in four weeks so I'll try it then.

This morning the ISO and +/- button were feeling like a 10 year old TV-remote control with years of cola on it.

After some rinsing with clean tap water, everything worked fine again.

So 1 very important tip for everyone, when you get you're camera soaked with dirty water, clean it with tap water
