What's the smallest weather-sealed lens?

It's raining today, and I'd usually take my camera with me, but the K-3 plus 18-55 is too big to fit in my purse. I'm wondering if there are any weather-sealed lenses that are smaller, the size of my 31mm or smaller, which fits just fine. So, what's the smallest lens that's weather-sealed? Is it the 20-40?

I think you're out of luck- the 18-55mm is the smallest. The 20-40mm is actually bigger (see our review).

Isn't the new 18-50 retractable lens WR? When it is retracted it seems to be quite small.

Totally forgot about the new lens! Yup, it's much smaller when retracted, about the same otherwise.
