Too cool. Mind if I ask what is it that you do? I mean, besides taking pictures under the earths surface?

Also, can you give an estimate of how many times you have showered your camera so far?
I'm a freelance photographer, I use my K20D for that. The underground stuff is just a hobby,

The K7 has has quite a few showers now.

I don't think Mr Buy a Pentax quite understands the meaning of submerged.

I see you have the 18-55mm WR lens on your K7, How is the sealing on this lens? Does it hold up well in the extreme conditions that you are using it in? I have the K200D and I have thought about getting this lens for bad weather conditions.

Rick
Well, it aint "weather" but i surely was soaking wet after taking this pictures
I hope it is extreme enough for you
(unfortunally i noticed to late that the the cam was on spot metering, that's why the white's are to white )

My K-7 after 2 1/2 hours snow and snow/rainwalk,EOS 50 was a good our in the same weather.
Both lenses ok,EOS 50 Backdisplay with 2 little waterbubbles,ocular little sweaty for a couple of days after that trip.
Now itīs all perfect.
But my Canonfriend donīt want it to do again that hard way.

Funny regards,Andy

Oh that's awesome, I got a K200d on the way Do you guys think or know there is a difference on the weather seals used on the K-7 compared to those on a K200d.

Awesome thread!

Try it out. And post pictures.

Actually the sealing of the K200D should be almost as good as the K20D's and K-7's. As long as you couple the body with a weather sealed lens of course.

From various Pentax brochures, you can see that the number of seals, and the level of claimed weather-proofing, steadily improves as you go from K200D > K20D > K-7:

K200D
HERMETICALLY SEALED: DUST AND SPLASH-PROOF BODY.
With the PENTAX K200D all weather is photography weather. 60 seals on the body and 14 on the battery grip ensure that moisture, dust and sand cannot wear at the camera. Additionally, the fbreglass reinforced polycarbonate housing with high-grade steel chassis offers the necessary robustness to stand up to the rigorous demands of daily use.

K20D
WATER OFF A DUCK’S BACK: A COMPLETELY SEALED BODY.
The K20D makes light work of heavy weather. 72 seals on the camera body and 38 seals on the battery grip combine to ensure that humidity, dust and sand cannot adversely affect the camera. Additionally, the fibreglass reinforced polycarbonate body with high-grade steel chassis offers the necessary robustness to meet the challenges of demanding daily use.

K-7:
With 77 weather seals in the body and 43 in the optional battery grip, the K-7 is fully moisture, dust and cold resistant. Whether shooting in a hot, humid forest or in freezing temperatures (down to 14 degrees F, -10 degrees C) on a mountain top, the K-7 will continue to perform. Offering the highest level of weather protection in its class, the K-7 is the perfect DSLR body for use in any environment - at home, in the studio, or when traveling where conditions are unpredictable.
