My whole issue is that Pentax is putting out these commercials where waves of water are hitting the camera but then their service centers don't cover water damage.

Commercial?  Pentax?  I've not seen anything like that around here in recent times.  They don't even seem to do much marketing on their own website.  Of course you could be talking about somewhere I'm not familiar with.  You got some links to Pentax commercials to post?

Cheers.

So it's OK for them to douse their cameras for advertising purposes but not for you to have failure due to water damage.

Also, there's really no rating assigned to what they call "water resistant."
