Panasonic didn't initially make any claims of enhanced sealing with the LX100 II. However, following claims of improved sealing around the lens, we are told: "There is no additional urethane sealing used but we have a countermeasure to prevent the dust ingress with the LX100M2. There will no longer be a gap when the lens barrel is moving."

"We have a countermeasure to prevent the dust ingress with the LX100M2"

This is promising, since dust getting sucked-in by the lens mechanism became a widely-discussed concern with the original version.

I asked because I've done a lot of Google searching and have not found anything from Panasonic; e.g., "Panasonic LX100 II Press Release" HERE.

As noted just would think given the large amount of negative LX100 MK1 dust issues postings, I would think Panasonic would note any lens dust intrusion improvements on the Panasonic's LX100 II Information/ Specifications.

I have the LX100 MK1, so far no sensor dust issues. Eventually will get the LX1000 II as I did with the LX100 MK1—after the price drops.

Thanks,
Jon
