I have just returned from a photo trip to Nome, Alaska. Everyone on the trip, including the guide, was using Olympus EM-1X and one Panasonic MFT. There was only one guy on the trip still using a huge Nikon body and 600MM lens.

That is difficult to believe, unless it was a m4/3 club own trip.

What’s surprising is the one guy with the large gear.

Camera bodies are lens holders.

The smallest professional cameras take MFT lenses.

The smallest pro lenses are MFT. A 300mm MFT lens replaces a 600mm FF.

Flying thousands of miles to Alaska and hiring a boat and guide to take photographs costs a whole lot of money.

What’s three grand, for such a group that decides that’s how they want to spend their money?

They can stay home, and use FF cameras and lenses.

Alaska is cold and wet and a small professional camera is at a premium.

First we need to accept that any lens or any body is professional capable.

But other question is that how many camera combos you can make that are highly weather sealed?

Now you start to do drop many professional gear as most are not weather sealed up to task of outdoors use in harsh conditions, that anyways very few are ready to face. Not a normal light rain but a pouring water for weeks, where you have everything, every crack in your body wet. And your challenge is to keep front element dry... Nothing else.

The problem with that is that there is very little good data on what is well weather sealed and what isn't. Also, about what kind of weather it's sealed against.

all my cameras work brilliantly in at least 1 kind of weather, therefore they are weather sealed

The ones you want are the ones that are vindaloo-and-eight-pints-of-Carling sealed.

there's a storm coming?
