E-M1.1 weather sealing proves it's worth
I have had the good fortune to take a business trip to Bergen Norway for the past week. I had a couple of evenings free and the whole weekend to explore. Lovely city, but very, very rainy in the spring. It has rained very day that I have been here. I was determined to see the city anyway, so I put on the rain gear and hit the streets.
I had a backpack with a Peak Design Capture Clip on the strap. It held the E-M1 with 12-40 with the lens pointing down. I walk for 2 hours in a steady rain one day and intermittent rain on other days.
Also got caught in a hail storm for 10 minutes.
I've always wanted to go to Bergen.
Getting there is easy and fairly cheap, but staying there looks more tricky and expensive. Like all of Norway.
As for weather sealing, I can not speak personally for the orginal EM1, but I've had absolutely no problem with my EM5II. Just like it dangle around your neck no matter the weather.
Here are a few more. Two murals that were near each other and a grab shot of "the birds".
Nicely done. I keep telling myself that the EM1.1 loses very little important to the EM1.2 (I have to say that, I have two of them!)
Especially with a good lens, like you used here, there s nothing wrong with its images
Love the second shot - and my E-M1.1 which has also weathered some very wet conditions.
Love Bergen. I think I stayed at a Youth Hostel right near the third picture.
