    Talking Weather-seal isn't enough ... Anti-shock cover for K10D/K20D!

    You think weather sealed body is good enough?

    Nope, some Japanese company (HAKUBA) just released an anti-shock protection cover for Pentax K10D/K20D:





    Available from July 5th, costs around 10000 Yan (~130SGD)

    Can it accomodate the grip? This Hakuba is good. I managed to find some metal lens hood during my Japan Trip. Extremely rare.
    I say the lens is the soul of a camera. What about the body? Well, it's just the body...

    Wow, look too good and tempting to buy. Can we Pentaxians (only K10D/K20D) organise MO sale?

    Looks like its not tight/well fitted. Seeing some slack around.
