How are lenses on AW1 sealed - any ideas

I just recently started dabbling in underwater photography and quickly learned why it costs so much. So much worry about o-rings leaking and expensive housings that allow access to the controls. Obviously, there are housings that have removable lens ports. However, those seem to have big o-rings and locking mechanisms. Does anyone have any images of how the AW-1 lenses will seal to the chassis? I wonder if users will be required to lubricate the seals, etc. Seams like a recipe for getting all sorts of garbage inside the camera - and ultimately on the sensor.
