    Is the Oly 12-50 the only "weather-sealed" lens? If so, would it be possible to attach some sort of o-ring to other lenses to create the same weather sealing that the 12-50 has? Anybody know?

    Other native :43: weather sealed options are the Panasonic 12-35 and 35-100 zooms and the Olympus 60mm macro. If you get a weather-sealed 4/3-to-:43: adapter (i.e. the MMF-3), there are a good variety of 4/3 lenses which are weather sealed that you can use as well.

    As far as trying to retro-fit weather sealing on other lenses, I've never tried that, but given the number of potential entry points for moisture it would seem very difficult at best.
