Its not a craze
In reply to amvrvd, Nov 9, 2012

Nikon, Canon and Pentax have been doing it for years. So has Olympus.

If you shoot outdoors a lot weather sealing is a wonderful safety blanket.  Something to tilt the odds so that you can take photos but lessen the risk on your equipment.  I do a lot of landscape photography, so for me weather sealing is a huge selling point.  It is just important to remember that weather sealing is not a guarantee - just a change in the odds.
