Considering a Pentax
1

Honestly the uncertainty of WR makes me want a Pentax. But the rational side of me knows that nothing is certain, any body can have a fault or get a compromised seal over time, so I wouldn't go Bear Grylls with a Pentax either.

Best protection is always to use multiple layers of security. Treat WR as another layer, with avoiding wet conditions being the first and a cover being the second. Another should be to make sure to clean and dry the gear out nicely after exposure to dirt or moisture, as prolonged exposure makes a fault more likely.
