    I recently acquired the M.Zuiko 14-150 weatherproof lens.
    I was out shooting with it when it started to rain
    and I thought "Great! money well spent . . ."
    And then, I started to adjust the zoom for a shot
    and I saw the soaking wet inner tube slide into the lens housing.

    Does anyone know or understand how a zoom lens can be weatherproof
    when you are sliding water in and out of the lens body while it's in use?

    Inquiring (and concerned) minds want to know . . .
