Hi Teogin, thanks for checking out our site.  Ah, looks like we have a mistake then in our K10D specs, I'll update them to reflect that its weather sealed too, thanks!

You are ridiculous with this kind of test/reviews. Don't you know that the body of K10D was so good, that K20D wore exactly the same! Exactly the same sealed body against rain and dust.  So, be careful for what you say as you seem to tell lies to the people.
