p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · TS-E 24mm II weather sealed without filter?


I know some of my lenses are not considered weather sealed without a filter on the front. I live in the wet, damp, rainy Pacific Northwest and am concerned about exposing the lens to less than dry weather without a filter.

No, it is not weather sealed at all. In fact that lens has more exposure to dust and dirt than many other lenses.

The tilt/shift lenses are not weather sealed with or without filter.

It's not weather sealed even with a filter. It doesn't have a rubber gasket at the mount, and it has far too many control gubbins and sliding surfaces to be weather sealed, without extraordinary effort. OTOH, a decent camera rain coat would probably do the trick - with a high quality filter on the front. I would use my 82mm B+W MRC #007 Protection Clear filter.

The 24/3.5L II manual doesn't say anything about weather proofing. The typical Canon lens manual descirption for a "weather proof" lens says:

    "Tight seal structure ensures excellent dust-proof and drip-proof performance."
