Now that I bought my first m4/3 camera and it happens to be weather-sealed and I live in a tropical country where for half the year you never know when you will be hit by a tropical downpour, I am naturally looking for some weather-sealed lenses. I decided to make a list of all the weather-sealed lenses that are currently available for M4/3. Unfortunately there seems to be very few weather-sealed primes and they are all specialised. Most of the weather-sealed m4/3 lenses are zooms.

The M.Zuiko 60mm f/2.8 Macro is definitely on my list and either the Lumix 12-60mm f/3.5-5.6 or 12-35mm f/2.8 as a travel zoom. But since I am planning to stick mostly to small fast primes as they are the main attraction of the m4/3 system, I will have to mostly go without weather sealing.

There are rumours that Olympus will start releasing a line of pro f/1.2 primes with weather sealing, but I imagine they will be large and pricey.

Here is the list of weather-sealed m4/3 lenses as of September 2016, in order of focal length.
