Does the P30 have foam light seals?

I thought that the P series (and onwards) no longer used foam light seals, presumably due to a design change or tighter tolerances in production. Am I wrong? I have seen a P30 and it seems to have partial foam light seals on the door, but they don-t look like they ever extended all the way around.

Many thanks for the help.

The only light seal on my P30T is around the ISO-viewing window on the back. Don't know if the P30 is the same, though.

My P30 has seals across the top, bottom and right hand side of the back (inset into the groove the door closes against) and the ISO window.

The rear door on the P30 is a metal one, like the earlier M series bodies.

As such it does have light seals.

The later P30N and T models have plastic rear doors and as such no foam.

Hope that helps.
