weather sealing IS great!

I took my K100D out on our jetski for a long journey down the main channel of Lake Powell and it was a blast... Didn't worry about a thing, other than falling off but that thankfully didn't happen. Lucky as to of how dangerous the main channel is for jetskis

I can certify that in my 4 months of K200D ownership I have had my Pentax out in several rainstorms and many many times in ocean spray no damage and a lot of photos. Weathersealing is not the ultimate answer to rain however, as we still need to have a rain repellent lens coating. Oh, and add salt water in there as well.
Of course, with the 18m long hood on the 50-135 you need horizontal driving rain to get that front element dirty, and even then only if you point it right at the rain .
