I live in a very rainy / snowy part of the world. This is not a very good thing if you are a photographer (specially with your shiny new gear) since you want to take it out but might be prevented from doing so from the amount of rain/snow.

Besides the common usage of the ziploc to prevent condensation and your camera bag, what else can I do while shooting to prevent accumulation of water snow on lenses and body?

PS. Camera and one lens is weather sealed but not the rest.

Are you having specific problems? With my weather-sealed gear, there is nothing I need to do but keep shooting :) ...and I too live in a very snowy part of the world....something I am strongly considering changing! – Itai Jan 4 '13 at 13:36

What about a rain sleeve like the one shown here at Amazon? Very cheap solution to your problem...
