Is it true that Pentax offers real value for money when looking for weather sealed bodies and lenses? There are no competitors which can even meet this at such price?It would be with my K7 and 50-135 or 18-55 WR lens, naked! The camera of course. (though I haven't yet - I did once take out my 50-135 and K20d out in the pouring rain. No problem at all). I love my pentax stuff for being built like a tank and weather sealed.
I considered it, but decided against it. I do actually have a cheap polariser, and it doesn't rotate all that freely. It's also far more useful as a polariser. (-: In addition to al lthat, I'm not happy with the idea of removing and re-inserting glass; it needs to be waterproof when I'm done.Brianetta, have you considered buying a cheap polarizer and discarding the filter glass from the mount. That would leave you with an empty filter mount that rotates. You could replace the polarizer glass with clear uv glass, or just screw the empty polarizer mount onto the back of a decent UV filter. Either way the lens barrel would be free to rotate after it had been attached to the rear of the housing for the polarizing filter.
