Pentax Canada Warranty
I've been looking at the Pentax Canada warranty and I've noticed this little quip,
No warranty shall cover any of the following conditions:
- A PENTAX product no longer within its applicable warranty period.
- Impact damage
- Water/moisture damage
- Foreign substance damage
- Sand damage
- Battery leakage
- Misuse or abuse
- Operation contrary to instructions provided in the instruction manual
- Modifications or servicing provided by anyone other than a PENTAX authorized repair centre
While Pentax makes many claims about weathersealing I doubt if they would cover it under warranty; they never said you can drop a K5 in water.
I am not aware of any camera manufacturer, anywhere in the world, that will guarantee against water damage, even for "Water Proof to 30ft" cameras. That's because there is no way one can prove a camera wasn't put in conditions that exceeded the specification.
