Seal on K20D

Well I cant fault it , as out on a 4 day trek round the Pilbara, slipped on rocks , me and camera got a fair dunking. People that I was with said "thats the end of your camera ". Well took a few more shots dried it off. They were amazed that it still working 4 days later.

What lens was on it?
I wouldn't even be surprised with a non-WR lens that the camera would survive. Weather sealing has paid itself off already for you.

Should be fine.
Shots must have been worth it.

Nice pics, rich color. Great story.

I still enjoy the K20D. Its a solid workhorse. Issue and problem free. Because it had class leading mega-pixels at its introduction its still competitive in that area 3 years latter.
