So I will be visiting a hill station in a few days where there is light snowfall. I own the X-S10 and this is the first time I will be venturing out in slightly challenging weathers with it. Just wanted to know from people who don't own an officially WR rated body, how much of a light beating can these cameras can take.

Can I use this in light snowfall? Can it withstand an ever so slight drizzle? I also own the Viltrox 13mm f1.4 and Sigma 30mm f1.4 and am planning to buy the Fuji 50-230 f4.-6.7 OIS II.

I've often wondered about this. I've heard stories about moisture ingress with WR equipment that was allegedly not severely exposed to elements.

I think I'd at least want a WR lens. If nothing else, the lens should survive and keep moisture from invading the mount area of the body.
