...Is moisture damage covered by warranty - if Pentax WR product breaks down in the rain, for example?

Does anyone know exactly this case? Is there some "weather protection" standards what Pentax WR meet?

Just wondering

I don't think water damage is covered at all. How do you identify users that weren't using weather sealed lenses and water got in through front, vs someone abusing their camera submerging it (definitely not rated for submersion).

Your best bet is to send it in if it gets damaged by rain and beg and plead with them to fix it under warranty
