K10D - Weatherproof Question

Have had my K10D since 11/21 and am still learning but, so far, have been more than pleased
Obviously, the weatherproofing is a major plus. However, until there are suitable lenses I am not sure of the real advantage. Any suggestions on protecting our existing lenses in inclement weather???

Wrap the lens in a small zip-loc bag with the end torn open - hold the plastic tight to the lens with a couple of elastics.

It's a balancing act - get the right size bag on the right size lens and you can still easily turn the zoom or focus rings through the bag.

I would say it depends on the lens. Just from what I've seen, I think the 14mm could withstand some pretty harsh weather and I've had the FA*24mm out in the rain with no ill effects. That said, I wouldn't trust my 43mm or 77mm to that kind of abuse.
