Did Pentax ever made a WR film body?

Hi,

Was there ever a Pentax Weather Sealed 35mm film SLR body?

Thanks,

WR Film bodies

The Zoom 90 WR. Used to be advertised filmed under a running tap. Not an SLR though, had auto wind and a remote control. I took on on an Atlantic crossing by yacht and it was great.

I have one, and they're nice little feature filled cameras. The timed intervals is a nice feature.

The LX was the only one that I am sure about, though the MZ-S may be.

Yes, the LX has a lot of seals - one of the reasons, why repair costs were higher, than on other bodies. They always had to reaseal the bottom or top plates after disassembly.

Yeah, as I recently found, a CLA for an LX is 2-3 times that for any other Pentax film body.
