Lenses and moisture...

The idea of a upgrading my k-x for the weather resistant k-7 is slowly making its way...
But what about my lenses... are they weather resistant???
On one end, itís not a feature that is talked about very much on Sigma or Tamron website... on the other all the lenses must have some level of sealing... otherwise the dust will be a much greater problem than itís.

As far as I know, only the WR and DA* lenses are weather resistant in the Pentax lineup. The rest are not.

It's not that big a deal.
