I don't know about the technical stuff on this, but I was just in Yellowstone on vacation. At one point I was out shooting in the pouring rain with my E-M1 II and Panny 100-300mm II. Everything worked absolutely great, and I had no problems. Not sure how sharp the pictures came out with the dark skies and pouring rain, but there was no problems with weather sealing. Incidentally I found out that buffalo can swim! Actually there were three buffalo that started out across the rain swollen river, two made it across, and one had to turn back. This was handheld at 300mm wide open at f5.6 1/320th of a second.No problem, glad to do it. I'll try to get some pictures tomorrow of the mounts from the PL 8-18 and the 100-300 II to illustrate the differences.
