    It is an icy mess outside, so I walked around our neighborhood, snapping photos of things that interested me. Weather sealing came in handy with the steady freezing rain that was falling. OM-D E-M5 + ZD 14-54 Mk II.

    It took me a while to get used to the idea of taking a weathersealed camera out in the rain but now it's great to have that extra confidence that it's built to survive those conditions.

    the weather sealing is great. But it's not protected against you slipping on the ice and falling on your camera. Be careful out there.
     
  4. Just remember, weather sealed don't not mean water proof. ;)

    Indeed. I've had the E-M5 covered in both rain and snow.
    You got that right. Our road has been a sheet of ice at times. Right now it is semi-frozen slush, but temps are going to drop into the low 10s (F). Don't look forward to tomorrow's commute.
    Olympus calls it "splash proof", but I've gotten the camera pretty wet. Not that I'd submerse the E-M5, of course.
