Pentax K-7 and K-5 are really built like tanks!

Watch and enjoy! If my Canon 5D ever dies on me I might be going for a Pentax even though they’re not full-frame but the weather sealing could be well worth it!

US soldier Alex Jansen took his two Pentax Cameras, The K-7 and K-5 and tested just how weather sealed and dust proof they are.

It is quite impressive to see a sub $1000 DSLR go through such an abuse and tough it like a big guy. Having watch the video, I am not really surprised at the lack of a strap.

If you’re interested, here is the list of gear that went under the test:

PENTAX K-7 + DA* 50-135 f/2.8

PENTAX K-5 + D-BG4 Battery Grip + DA* 16-50 f/2.8

But if I win the lottery I’ll probably go for a 1D or something 🙂
