This is very impressive stuff from Pentax. They have been making these weather sealed bodies and lenses for a long time for quite reachable price levels. Shame that we only have one sealed lens and very few bodies:

Well I used my A850 under snow and rain but not for a long period, wonder if it can stand in a similar situation....

Well, as both the A850/A900 are weather sealed, it should be the same as any other manufacturer, though using it for scuba diving at 10 metres would be inadvisable. That said, it may depend on how many seals are used and where (I haven't checked the battery cover).
