A very thin flat neoprene washer might help with minimal effort. It might impact the infinity focus.

Probably would be best. I can say mine wasn't and the hot shoe works great today. Now I could of just gotten lucky but it all worked pretty good for being a non WR lens without the hot shoe cover and the lens was an M42 lens at that.
Thanks, I'll keep that in mind.

Would it be possible to add a thin o-ring to the rear of a non WR lens to improve weatherproofing of the body when using such a lens?

I have used a very wide rubber band around the outside base of the lens before and it seemed to work.
