Where are you going that will have, “spray splashing everywhere”? I take the RP and 24-240 to the ocean no problem. But it’s gulf coast Florida. Not down on a rocky outcrop with eight foot waves hammering the shore. And if I did want to shoot that, the lens goes to 240 for a reason.

If you’re just talking beach vacation you’ll be fine.

Also, if it’s raining on vacation for me, I tend to seek shelter. If I do take pictures, I’m under something. Otherwise my gear is in my backpack which has a rain cover.

Do you anticipate actually attempting photography in the rain?

I think weather sealing is great for pros who have to shoot events no matter what. For average people like me, I don’t even want to walk around in wet clothes or shoes. My camera certainly won’t be at much risk they way I travel.

I always have a large trashbag in my bag. If weather gets too bad for the rain cover, I just put it all in a trashbag to wait it out. This is when Im in the middle of nowhere usually though.
