Lenses for XT2 – weatherproof or not

Hi everybody!

I would be happy to get advice about Fuji lenses.

I am planning to buy a XT2. I am often travelling in Asia, in tropical climate and deserts as well. Of course I thought about buying the 16-55 WR Zoom, but found it really heavy. (I need a camera that I always carry around with me) I love the regular 18-55 for the amazing price and the size, but I am afraid one sandstorm or one rain might not just ruin the lenses, it might ruin the body as well as the seals of the WR lenses are far better.

I love to take pictures in rain, in difficult light and weather conditions, so alltogether the WR Zoom seems to be a good choice. Or am I just too cautious, the WR thing is completely overrated and should go with the regular lenses…

How is your experience? Would love to get some advice…
