Not to say weather sealing isn't good, or useful to many, but as with some features, its used as bragging alot rather than actually used.

I don't agree; I need (but don't have) a sealed camera because it would remove concerns about equipment in scenes like this (with a NEX-C3):

Or this (with a Fuji X100):

In both cases water on the camera was unavoidable, and in one case was still there for quite some time until I could find shelter.

Unfortunately the OMD is too expensive for my budget otherwise I would certainly buy one - but only because of its weather sealing.

PS: I'll probably buy one long after it is discontinued and remaining stock gets dumped at fire-sale prices, just like I did with the E-1 some years ago
