Weather sealing is only important when you need it. LOL. In my area, summertime often brings quick, sudden rainstorms and you get about 1/2 hour of hard downpours and then the sun comes out again. I have been caught out in those several times and my E-3 and 50-200 or 12-60 have been tested and came through like a champ. If I'm walking around Disney or Bush Gardens in the rain, I can count on the Canikon shooters warning me that my camera is getting wet.

And little do they know that the Birdman of Florida has weather seals. :-)

Well put it this way, if everything else is equal (including pretty close in price from what I can tell) I would want it with rather than without even if I hardly ever use it. It will be interesting to see where they set the price for this considering the good EM5 deals you can get now. Will it be the same price as the EPL5? Then you're talking to me, but I don't see why they would do that.

I wonder how fast the OM10 will focus with 4/3 lenses.

no faster than any of the CDAF cameras (EM-5, E-P5, EPL-5, E-PM2, etc.) only the EM-1 has the PDAF capability needed to focus 4/3 lenses quickly
