I a small weather sealed lens would be very welcome. I know that weather sealing takes up space, but the EM5 is small and its been out for 2 years. If it could be pared up with a weather sealed pancake it would be amazing. So far all of the weather sealed lenses are quite large: 12-40 2.8, 12-50, 12-35 panasonic, and 60mm macro. What I would really would enjoy would be a 12-32 weather sealed pancake, or a 25mm fast weather sealed prime. Is there any reason that weather sealed usually mean large on micro four thirds?

The need is pretty low for the wanting of weather sealed primes, those the want them are fan boys or those that very rarely venture out in bad weather anyway.

I'm guessing you don't live in a rainforest.

No not a rain Forrest, but we get plenty of bad weather with the occasional snow blizzard and I get out in all weather and use none sealed lenses with never a single problem.

Weather sealing is only really needed for the most extreme cases and those that are out in it almost 24/7 and this is likely to effect very few users here.

My guess is that far to many of these forum users spend far to much time dusting every single spec of dust off there bodies and lenses and would have a hissy fit if a single droplet of rain landed on there beloved camera
