I have a D7000 and the Nikkor 18-200 at the moment. I know that the D7000 has weather seals but I'm not sure about the lens. So what really does "weather" refer to here?
I had a watch once that was water resistant and I managed to water ski with it many times and never had a problem. Another watch that I had died after washing my hands that was also water resistant.
I was out shooting in light rain on the weekend and light, but wet snow today. I did my best to limit the exposure of the camera to the elements and kept it in my jacket when walking. But it did get wet on both outings.
the obvious answer is don't get it wet at all and you will be fine but that just isn't practical if you want shots in anything but perfect conditions. So just how much is too much? Consider that I'm not a pro, obviously, and I really can't for that reason risk the system for a shot as it will not pay for the loss.
