Hm. I use old lenses sometimes, and whoa.. I use WR lenses, too. Yay, 2 data points canceling each other out! That was a really useful exercise!

WR is a big selling point of pentax cameras.

Maybe it doesn't matter to you. Maybe it doesn't even matter to the OP. But it certainly matters to a fair number of people or they wouldn't have it in the first place... and telling them to switch out their lens mount without a bloody big warning that it's going to remove the most important part of their weather resistance strikes me as irresponsible.

It was one thing when they only made the mount for the non-WR bodies... no harm, there. But now they support the bodies with WR but don't bother putting an O ring on the product to replicate the stock one.

What's your point? This goes beyond that, into "Use a K-30 with the Adaptist mount with a WR or * lens, and it STILL isn't WR"

Installing that on a WR camera makes it no longer WR. That's a pretty big downside for a modification that you would probably not want to do on a regular basis.

You could get the nikon version. It will fit in the Pentax mount but lock or be terribly secure unless you do a little bit of filing on the adapter. The registration distance is close enough that it doesn't matter much.

there's an less involved version than this article shows around here somewhere, but I couldn't find it, sorry.
