How important is weather sealing?
May 1, 2012

Hi

One of the great attractions of E-M5 is the weather sealing. I often put away my G2 when it is raining (and often need to bring an extra bag for it for that reason). However, I would like to know if weather sealing is really necessary for ordinary use?

In other words: Have any of you had your g2 or other m43 camera (or perhaps even m43 lenses) destroyed by rain? (please convince me that I can relax a bit more when its raining)
