Underwater K20D (don't try this at home, kids... or not?)

On the Italian forum pentaxiani.it, one of the moderators, after an accident in which his K20D fell in a pond, without any damage, has tried to photograph UNDER WATER in a swimming pool with a bare K20D and DA 16-50, with no damage again!

Impossible to do without a WR (Water Resistant) lens... that is, without damaging the K20D (or K7 for that matter) and its lens. Even with the proper WR, it's certainly pushing the envelope and voiding the Pentax warranty (if it got damaged).

Sure, but it is a statement to the really good seaing of K20d and star DAs.

Well they are supposed to be splash proof, guess that means dunk proof to.

I suspect some trickery there.
Never trust a moderator, I should know.
