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.

Thanks for your thorough marketing study.   Why wouldnt weather sealing be useful? I love taking photos in a storm or rain when light is diffused and less harsh.  Having sealing is not essential, but its certainly nice to have.
