Why weatherproofing really matters to me [IMGS]

It is not just protection for the trip towards the shoot.
It is not just being able to shoot in wind, rain, sleet, snow, duststorms etc.
It is the confidence to shoot anywhere anytime without hesitation.
Because hesitation may result in missing the moment.

To get this shot, at the base of the waterfall...:

... near the end of this platform...:

... I had to allow my camera to get this wet, without hesitation:

First two images are ZD12-60 on E5. Last image is ZD7-14 on E5, on my second walk towards the tempest, after having wrung my T-shirt and cleaned my glasses.

The other guy shot an image with his iPhone and did not seem very worried either...
