I realise this an old thread about weather sealing and most have commented on the problem of humidity. I am concerned about how extreme heat could affect a lens. For example it was about 33 deg's and I had 2 cameras around my neck. After using one for macro for a while I grabbed my other camera and it was so hot that I could barely hold the lens. Could this have damaged the lens ?

Hi,

I live by the Mediterranean sea and it gets hot here in summer, I never had a problem, best to keep cameras a little shaded though as in direct sunlight, as you said a camera body can easily reach 60°. The LCD top screen can go black but clears after cooling down. Lenses I think are less of a worry than the bodies.
