Lack of weather sealing on Fuji's primes
8 months ago

Is really inexcusable in my view and is another nail in the coffin for why I think I am selling my Fuji gear. I hear people say things like "less important" for primes, not all prime lenses for other manufacturers do it, blah blah blah but these lenses are expensive and the clutch and the aperture ring are really attractors of dirt. Given how much smaller cameras are useful for travel photography this is exactly when you want better sealing!

For me the Fuji 23mm is a dream lens really, with that beautiful MF ring as well as great image quality, and its a great focal length, but its just not suitable. Such a shame. I just hope Fuji bring out a full weather sealed X200 or something - as David Harvey says they really need it!
