WR lens mounts

There is a thread I came across on another forum, concerning the water resistant gaskets of Panasonic lenses on Olympus bodies and vice versa.

Apparently there is a small difference in flange size and screw placement, which results in Panasonic lens gaskets being torn up by the screws on Olympus, and Olympus gaskets being just too large a diameter to seal properly on Panasonic.

I am about to invest in 40-150/2.8, but if it is not properly WR on my Panny body I will think again.  (It will be used in splashy/wet conditions)

Has anyone any experience?

thanks

tom
