    this is one easy way to see which are the bodies that are weather sealed.
    Camera feature search: Digital Photography Review

    for lenses with sealing.... I will leave it to you.
    hint. it can also be found in the same site.

    Which brings me back to my original question:
    What kind of situation are you intending to subject your camera (and I suppose yourself) to, that will benefit from this additional weather sealing?
    Exploring! :)

    boat fishing.... hmmmm, I guess that includes lots of spray from the sea.
    Well I think you would still need to take the same precautions in such a situation, regardless of the sealing capabilities of your camera body and lens A good wipe-down at the soonest convenient opportunity should go a long way to preserving the function of your equipment.

    As for -10C cold... hmmm, environmental sealing should be unnecessary, I feel. Even a PnS would likely still work

    Take a look at this youtube video regarding weather seals.

    DISCLAIMER:
    I DON'T RECOMMEND YOU TRY IT! Even though my equipment has also survive quite tough conditions ( rain, desert sand storms n temperature over 55 degrees C, winter sub zero for prolonged periods ).

    For boat fishing or any activity related to seawater I strongly recommend you get an underwater housing instead. Seawater is very corrosive, long exposure in such harsh conditions will ultimately spell doom to your camera/ lens.
    Fujifilm X-Pro2 Graphite, X-Pro1
    XF 14/2.8, 18/2, 23/2, 35/1.4, 56/1.2, 60/2.4, 55-200/3.5-4.8

    weather seal good to have.... but used it as if its not weather proof. Usually weather proof gear are more ex .. so unlikely I will use it harshly
