Winter, cold, snow - who needs the weather sealed X-T1? Fujifilm X-Pro1 in cold weather

Living in Norway, I'm used to all kinds of weather. Rain, snow, tough winds and storms. Sometimes plus 25-30 degrees celcius in the summer, and down to minus 30 degrees celcius in the winter. So - I'm waiting in big anticipation for the upcomping Fujfilm X-T1 with its weather sealed body. My biggest concern is that it seems very small. I like the size of the X-Pro1. But, being weather sealed is a big plus. For now we only know of one weather sealed lens, the 18-135mm zoom, so perhaps I will wait a bit longer than the mid February release.

Anyway - who says I have to wait? Today it was minus 18 degrees celcius, snow and wind - and my Fujifilm X-pro1 with the XF14mm f/2.8 and XF 35mm f/1.4 performed flawlessly!

The above pictures is from Sør Fron Kyrkje (church) in Gudbrandsdalen.

The pictures below is from Ringebu stavkirke (stave church). You can read about the Norwegian medieval wooden stave churches here which are located in different places around in Norway. Ringebu stave church is first mentioned in 1270 although it could be older.
