The 1DX is weather sealed. You add a non weather sealed lens to the equation and question the "camera"?

Actually, the lens that I used with the 1DX was the 16-35mm 2.8L 11 NOT the 100-400mm

Interesting how we all jumped to the conclusion that when you changed cameras you moved the 100-400mm lens over to the 1DX. Now you realize that by telling this new bit of info to us, we have to start the speculation chatter all over again. Does the 16-35mm 2.8L have the appropriate weather seals and if so, do they need to be replaced after so many shutter actuation's in order to maintain the integrity of the seal? Since you have a repair bill, did Canon describe what exactly got damaged?

with the 100-400L.
