Re: Penrax K3 weather sealing problem.

That's exactly the problem. You can take whatever product photo Ricoh uses to advertise the weather sealed cameras and mentionning whenever they can ths unique selling point in this price category, but then, they protect themselves by excluding the seals from the warranty.

The other problem are these forums. We all have taken our weather sealed equipment out in pretty bad conditions and most of the time are pretty impressed on how well the camera dealt with it. But if a problem arises, there is the common understanding that since it is weather sealed, the damage is covered by the warranty, where Ricoh clearly took that out and leaves it to their own decision to honor the warranty or not.

Best luck with solving your problem.
