Those weather sealed DLSR's

Does it stand to reason that a K-3 is more weather sealed than, say, a KS-2? Or does weather sealed mean weather sealed regardless of the cost of the body?

The level of sealing on the inside is about the same. However, the K-3 is built to be more durable, since it has a metal body.

As far as lenses go, those labeled AW or DA*/DFA* generally have superior sealing to lenses labeled WR.

I notice many other manufacurers are coming out with weather resistant bodies and lenses (Fuji, etc.). But it definitely is not the same as weather sealed.
