Which Pentax bodies are WR?

The highest mp body I have is a K-01. I wanted to get a dlsr. But I'd like it WR. Which models are WR?

Thanks

I believe the K30 and probably the K200D as well have a simpler sealing then the rest.

Remember you will need a WR lens to go along with the WR body. Otherwise its not WR.

Besides the 3 zooms (18-135, 18-55, 50-200), what other lenses are WR ? All AL Limited ? And from 3rd party manufacturers are there any WR options?

The DA* 55/1.4
DFA 100/2.8 Macro WR
DA* 200/2.8
DA* 300/4
DA* 16-50/2.8
DA* 50-135/2.8
DA* 60-250/4
DA 560/5.6 AW

That's it...Limiteds are not sealed, no 3rd party lenses in Pentax mount.

Once again there are 2 standards for the lenses as well.
WR lenses have the simpler sealing while DA* and the 560 AW have better ones.

I wonder how the WR, DA* and AW seals are different though. I've been reading water ingress prevention stories from WR level to AW; I wonder at which level will they "fail"?
again there are some that didn't work as advertised...

AW is advertised as weather sealed, so they will keep the weather out.
While WR is simply resistand so not sealed against the elements but good enough to resist it for a while.
