Re: Fuji Lenses Weather Sealing
In reply to zenpmd, 11 months ago

I've been sitting on the fence for a while and haven't taken the plunge into Fuji yet, much as I really like the XE1/2 and lens range.  The lack of water and dust resistance has been one aspect of Fuji's design that disappoints me.  As premium cameras it should have been designed into the system from the outset.  It's clear from Pentax products that it adds mere grams in weight and limited extra cost -  they've offered sealed DSLRs at prices less expensive than X series cameras.

IMO sealing should be standard - and I think sealing would be an asset to the X system.  I was intrigued to read above that a sealed camera between the XE and XP series is tipped to be offered early in 2014.  I'll look with interest........
