18-55mm dust sealing question...
Jan 4, 2013

I purchased an X-Pro 1 and a 18-55mm lens. I purchased them from different places and the lens arrived today but the body won't be here until tomorrow. The agony! I must admit, the lens has good heft to it and feels very solid for its size. My question is in regards to weather sealing. I was surprised when I took the rear cap off to see what looks to be a protective layer that looks to be designed to help prevent dust from getting in the lens. I know the X system is not advertised as being weather sealed. However, seeing this got me to wonder if anyone has had an issue with dust getting into this (or any Fuji) lens. Do all they lenses have this rear piece on the lens?
