Re: OM-D + 12-50 kit: confident to use in all weather

Olympus weather sealing is legendary. I wonder if their knowledge in the medical field where instruments are literally soaked in flesh has given them a solid understanding of how to manufacture excellent seals.

Regardless of what the reason is, an Olympus representative high up on the chain, may have been the president, said they have never had a warranty issue for their weather sealing breaking.

The weather sealing was one of the main reasons I bought an E-M5. I wouldn't worry about using this camera in the pouring rain. Actually, I believe an Olympus representative gave an interview and he was asked if the camera could be used in the pouring rain and he said yes.
