Doesn't Pentax also have a AW weather sealed designation? I recall seeing mention of it somewhere and how it related to DA* but can't remember where.

There is a good description in the Pentax Lens Catalogue:

"AW" (All Weather) applies to the DA* lenses plus the HD DA 560mm f/5.6 ED AW.

Thanks, I haven't seen that catalog before. Its interesting that the description of WR on page 4 implies weaker weather protection than the description on page 7.
