Thank you. That's actually a good idea, and I can test it right away with my Canon G9 and the underwater housing that I really never used.

I also saw this one in doing more searching around:

which touts weather sealing. Wonder if it's enough for the fine dust I'm trying to avoid. I don't expect we'll be changing lenses often, and if we do, it would be in the showroom area, not in the dusty production area.

Reason on the matter for a moment:  Which is larger, a dust particle or a molecule of water?  Correct, so if a camera/lens can seal out water, then it has to be able to seal out larger dust particles.
