Olly 12-40 pro, sealed ?

Although I have a good range of Panasonic pro lenses, I am starting to really appreciate how my Olympus lenses behave when needing to use manual focus at night on my Panasonic cameras,  and wish to acquire the Olympus 12-40 f2.8 pro to replace (or compliment) my Panasonic 12-35 f2.8 pro.

Trying to be careful financially I have been looking at the possibility of purchasing a used 12-40, BUT was horrified when reading the condition description of every onr, ALL say they had dust inside!!!

Yet Olympus describes the 12-40 pro as being a weather sealed lens.

As none of my current lenses have dust inside - despite very frequent use - I wondered is there a problem with the Olympus 12-40 f2.8 pro?
