Either the camera is weatherproof, in which case it's guaranteed or it's not weatherproof, in which case I'll be making complaints galore to the advertising authorities. Pentax can't have it both way.

Pentax never advertise this camera as weatherproof, only weather resistant.  There is a difference.  It's not like the old Nikonos.  I've seen people switching lenses in the rain without thinking and got water in via the lens mount.  Not saying that you did this, only that it's possible and possible for one of the 92 seals to fail.  Given enough time the seals will fail.

Having said that, a camera this new should not be doing what yours did.
