Sure when it's snowing i prefer to use a WR or DA* lens and found now difference in the field between the 2 types of weather sealing degree.

I hope that is the case because if I ever get out ski touring again, I'd rather take the cheaper lighter 18-135 WR and hope is also helps protect the camera. Unfortunately in Australia, the snow is usually not that dry.

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.
