There was a user on here that destroyed several new K-30 with water testing the weather sealing, with similar failures as yours. I imagine it isn't as well sealed as the K-5 series cameras.

I can't find it now, but probably back when K-30 was new.


I have had the K10 since it was released and have never experienced anything like that with it.

It has been out in both light rain and snow with no problems.

But K10, K-5, K-7, etc are drastically different cameras.  I never had issue with my K20d or K-7 in a downpour, but I think the K-30 specifically has some sealing issues.
