The Fuji X-PRO2 will be weather sealed (Trusted Japanese Source)

I got an email from our beloved trusted Japanese source. It simply said:

Patrick, you better add weather sealing to your X-PRO2 specs list!”

And so I did ;)

I have NO rumors about it, but I can’t stop thinking that the 35mmF2 WR (scheduled to come in November according to this roadmap) would be the perfect kit lens for a weather sealed X-PRO2.

And the weather sealing? Is it a gimmick or must have? There is a debate about it over at the FXF! Take a look here and feel free to share your opinion, too.
