You’re right Moose, I also always take the best (suited) gear for that trip or 
other ;-)

I’m just back from Egypt - took and used exclusively my weather sealed fuji and 
zoom lens, on the dusty markets, on the windy road and in the sandy desert. And 
also not weather-sealed lenses, which remained comfy at the bottom of the 
camera bag sealed in Ikea deepfreeze bags … I’m editing my catch now, and so 
far have NO regrets. Next time, I’ll travel even lighter ;-)

Best is such a absolutely relative misconception …
