Re: Don't believe the few hype cases of failed weather sealing....
In reply to lambert4, Feb 20, 2014

I was pointing to that example as I do have a little hard time to understand how can someone claim a lens/body is weather sealed (I would love to see the body!) when you can get such inside them. Like in what kind environments does those manufacturers really test their lenses?

I believe that manufacturers would be in big trouble in many countries government consumer rights watchdogs because false marketing. If you sell and market your product as "dust proof", then dust sized particles are not allowed to affect the product.

And it isn't enough that manufacturers would claim that it is just a normal dust, when they are marketing their products with ads where cameras and lenses are exposed to very fine dust.
