I know it's awesome to be able to shoot in the midst of Sandy without fear of ruining your camera but, do we really need every lens to be weather-sealed !?

In the midst of Sandy storm, I stayed inside to be safe by myself. In short moments when I was outside, protected by brick wall, to smoke a cigarette, I had no desire for the camera.

I've had many cameras, none of them were sealed, none of them failed due to weather conditions, and I'm not craving for this feature.

I’m surprised how much Wikipedia contributes to the forum.
