Default Question on Oly 50-200mm

Is the old version of this lens weatherproof?

Yep, all 50-200mm versions, both old and new are weatherproof. And I can personally attest to this after being caught outdoors several times when sudden afternoon Florida showers pop up.

Great and I understand the 14-54mm is also weather proof. Thanks.

James.. all of the Pro HG and SHGs are sealed, the SG like the 40-150 not so. The HG/SHG are all metal build as well inc the mounts.

PanaLeica lenses are not weather sealed - not sure why they didnt get the sealing esp as they were HG grade.
