Of course, with a weather sealed lens like the upcoming 18-135. Just curious to know or find out what other use cases such a weather proof camera might have. I've heard beach for example. What does this mean ? If the camera gets sand on it, would you wash it with water or a damp cloth ? Finally, would the warranty cover water or humidity damage ? Although Fuji does make other weather sealed cameras, like the recent bridge camera they released, this is still their first iteration on a digital ILC camera.

Although I've owned the weather sealed canon 60D, I've never even considered putting its weather sealing under any stress (note I only paid 800$ for it, new). Trying to educate myself and maybe others too, thx.
