    They're designed in Japan. It gets snowy and drizzly there. So logically...

    Of course, do consider that they're not weather-sealed so you shouldn't get them drenched. But for exposure to a bit of drizzle? Should be no issue.

    Best to exercise the "kiasu/kiasee" attitiude. Unless you really have to, keep it dry. And if does gets wet, dry it as soon as possible.

    Kiasu = Scare Lose, Kiasee = Scare Die
    So just keep the lens away from rain as far as possible

    Drizzle is fine, nothing to worry or being scared of. Wipe the lens with a cloth and that's it.

    TS, my friend came back from Harbin 2 weeks back, temperature there is -30degC, both his D7000 and lens survived the harsh weather.
    As for rain, unless there is a scene or object that you die-die must shoot even of light rain, then go ahead. Just wipe it dry after that.
