Don't get it either - especially since it's perfect for sports

And not all sports are indoors. We love watersports, and I've been hoping to get a full weather-sealed system for years. Now I've the E-M5, but none of the long zoom lens are weather-sealed, nor is this lens. 75mm would have been an ideal focal length (maybe a bit short, but more flexible this way). No One would complain at all, if it was $500. But for $900, how much would it have hurt to put a couple of freaking gaskets on it. And yeah, I would rather pay $1000 for a weather sealed version than $900 for non-sealed version, even though putting on gaskets would have raised manufacturing costs by what, a couple of bucks?
