Are there any underwater housings for Pentax still available?

I see that Ikelite no longer manufacture their cases for Pentax DSLR. Are there any others still extant for scuba diving?

http://dicapac.com/wp-s5/ should fit anything but maybe the K1 (the WP-S10 would fit if the 5 wouldn't - don't get it for the smaller cameras, though -- I did, and it 's very awkward to use with the K3), but it's only rated to 5 meters. Works nicely for taking pictures while swimming, or just having your camera in a raft or kayak without worrying about it capsizing.

A member recently reported using a custom housing with the K-3. Might be worth reaching out to learn more:

The Dicapacs are more "in-water" than underwater. They are absolutely useless for SCUBA like the OP is interested in. A 5 meter rating is being VERY generous, since pressure will be a severe problem well before that point with a soft case like this.
