Weather-sealed is one of the reasons I bought this camera so I don't have to worry about rain or dust entering my A7 camera but now...

This is quite deceptive for Sony to do this. Removing the weathersealed description on their website without informing the consumers!

First off - this is on the "rumors" website. Second, it's been known for some time on the forums that there is very little if any weather proofing on this camera - I see no gaskets anywhere on mine. It could be that Sony only meant to say that it's components are very durable even if they get wet. Or it could be that they had intentions of producing this camera with gaskets but this feature didn't make it into the final production model.

But even more important, what about this makes us think the missing weather seal description wasn't just an oversight? I think we need to hear Sony's explanation first.

In other words, there are a lot of plausible explanations that make perfect sense before we go suing.

With all due respect, I read on the Sony store website when I purchased my Sony A7 and now, it has been deleted....

There must be a reason, but that might be something altogether different. But is it still possible that the A7/r cameras were rushed too quickly though development into production, by the newest Sony administration?
