Kudos onpicture of the fruit (apples?). I have heard that the good images can be captured during and after rain; I'm too afraid though to expose sensitive electronics to moisture! I would be interested to learn of tips and tricks to overcome this issue. Jay

The shot of the apples was after an all night and early morning rain. Of all the things I would like to see in future Pentax DSLRs, water and dust proofing/sealing would be my wish.

If the sky even looks like rain, I stuff a plastic bag in my pocket to use to cover the camera. I have also put it inside of a goretex rain jacket to keep it dry and safe.

Jay, take a plastic bag, transparent is best, and put it over your camera, now wrap a tight rubber band over the very end of the lens (such as in between the focus ring and your filter, or at least beyond the moving parts. Now if you cut the plastic bag beyond the rubber band, you now have a decently water resistant cover with the lens glass exposed!

hurah for household items.

Use a thin but strong bag so you can easily turn the zoom ring and focus without the bag getting twisted and bunched up.
I suppose a lens hood would add extra protection but I dont use a hood when i have to "plastic bag it".
