Fujifilm X-T1 first thoughts, Weather Resistant does it make a difference?

A camera long rumored was announced today and there wasn't really any secrets about the cameras that wasn't known before today. It was a smart trick by Fujifilm as it has gotten a lot of mentions, so it is off to a good start, but does the camera hold up to the hype?

The camera is listed as being weather resistant, but as far as I know most of the lenses from Fujifilm hasn't gotten the same feature, so does it make a difference that the camera body is? I have always have cameras that were listed as being weather resistant, but I think I treat the camera the same way as I would a model that doesn't have it. I protect the camera and try not to expose it. Why? Well I think I just don't want to hit the point where I have to send the camera for a repair and try to convince the camera maker that it wasn't my fault.
