K-30. Why u die.

Ok, so I was trying to shoot water drops this morning with the k-30 and WR 100 macro. maybe 75ml (1/4 cup) of water splashed onto the back and sides of the camera, dead in seconds, water in all ports, water in the screen, have waited 12 hours, still not working, have changed batts and cards. How could they market this as weather sealed it was a very small amount of water on the back?!!! Note there is no water in the mount/mirror/sensor, I checked. Looks like the camera failed not the wr lens.

Very dissapointed, even my sony can handle a hike, hail, and pouring rain.
