I'm not sure about the latter as a potential problem. However there is no "environmental sealing" claimed and it may require a cover when shooting in wet conditions. The image quality, right from the earliest lenses, always looks excellent.

The Mk1, used, might be around at the right money.
I have one and I love it. I bought it about 3 years ago now but actually like the old style of zoom. I've never used it in the wet and after losing a lens to mould (many years ago) I don't shoot in heavy rain anyway.
