K3II & K1, among others, do not have a physical AA filter, so one will be wet cleaning or 'razor blading ' something deeper in the stack. Top of the Bayer filter perhaps? Permanent damage might result.

They do have UV and IR-cut filters, though. I won't guarantee they can't be scratched, but the sensor is not directly exposed.

Hence, when they recommend adding a UV lens filter at the local camera shop, it is expensive overkill and degrades the image a bit.
