On a reunion trip to Wales the K5iiS and I encountered some typical Welsh weather for May! I have never before needed to rely on the weather resistance aspects of camera or lens - this time I had no choice! The camera was undaunted and functioned perfectly and having been dried out shows no ill effects for its experience. I took this photo on a mossy stump - I recalled similar Pentax marketing shots for many of their DSLRs - it was somewhat damp!

Isn't it just the best feeling? I went to Chester zoo once with my K-3 and 50-135 when the heavens opened. Everyone else took shelter but I happily walked around in the rain.

It allows you to capture a different kind of scene without using all too much protective gear.

Most satisfying indeed, and friends amazed whilst they didn't dare expose theirs to the elements! The self-image shot at the end of the lake into driving rain was the real test!
