X-T1 Weather Sealing Appears to be Pretty Effective ...

This past week I was leading a Santa Fe Photographic Workshop on the Chama River.  Without boring you with the details, I accidently left my X-T1 with an 18-55 lens outside one night in what turned out to be a soaking downpour.  The camera and lens was "recovered" about 30 minutes later, but it was VERY wet (with splattered mud), etc.  Knowing that there was no weather seal between the body and the 18-55 lens, I was a bit anxious as to the outcome.  The next morning, condensation was quite apparent in the viewfinder and the lens elements.  After a good wipe down and a couple of hours in the warm sun, everything was WORKING PERFECTLY.  I would rate Fuji's weather sealing to be quite effective.

BTW, most of the photographers were using Fuji X-E2 or X-T1, followed by Olympus OMD-1, and then Nikon D800's.  The mirrorless genre definitely outnumbered the DSLR for this program.
