Does this massive lens not have weather sealing? Or does it require a filter to be weather sealed?

Even if it is weather sealed, there is a gigantic gap between the focus ring.

WRONG! it's not weathersealed even with a filter.

This lens suffers from dust collection JUST behind the rare element.

This is the biggest thing that I hate about the lens! I hope that the next iteration has an internal focus mechanism.
