You are assuming that the lens and the body are equally susceptible to weather - when the reality is that the body is far more likely to have a weather related issue.  All the buttons, all the electronics, all the openings - all make the body the weak link.  That is why a weather sealed body with a non sealed lens is still a really big deal.

Sure it would be nice to have sealed lenses as well, but downplaying the importance of a sealed body simply because there is a relative lack of sealed lenses is not accurate.
