Yes, I would rather be slowed down in the field (I am not a sports snapper) by having slower to open socket covers that seal better. I may even identify those functions I do not use and fill them with silicone. I love the sound of valves (tubes) but if I were a musician working on the road it would have to be Class D amps every time; they're lighter, more durable and less likely to blow local circuit breakers. Sometimes we have to compromise. I have heard there is to be available soon an aftermarket protective coating for smart phones that might suit the less cautious photographer too.
