Hi everyone, just 2 quick questions about the rubber o-ring gaskets at the base of all L series lenses. 1. Has anyone ever had problems with this as per ripping, tearing or just plain drying out over time or years of use?? Second does that rubber seal actually keep any extra water or moisture out the lens or body during use??
One last question......I have only used canon gear in life. Does anyone on here know if Nikon puts those seals on the base of there high end lenses aswell??, just curious. I saw Nikon just release a whole bunch of profesionall primes. 24mm 1.4, 35mm 1.4 & 85mm 1.4. Do those lenses have those rubber o-rings?? They cost significantly more than the Canon versions.
Thanks for your time, Adam
