Re: It's not just for shooting in rain

I shoot a lot of water sports and other coastal activities and frequently do so in wet, windy and sandy conditions. Whilst "Weather Sealing" is not essential (that's what plastic bags and rubber bands are for ) it sure as heck is worth having, particularly when a wave suddenly slops over the side of the harbour breakwater and tries to wash you into the harbours (as happened to me not long back)

I don't understand all the fuss - if you don't need it, don't buy it and leave those of us who do to get on with our own business - simples!

(not aimed at you TrapperJohn, it was a reply to the main thread that just got tagged on to your input some how)
