I have the 1.8D already and I know it doesn't have a seal. I am wondering of the G does because if so I might replace the D with a G so I can be better assured if I take my camera on holiday snowboarding that the water won't get in.

The assumption here is that you are wondering about the rubber seal around the mount. It is of course possible to have rubber seals on a lens in other locations such as the buttons as well. If you could clarify which seal you are interested in that would help. – dpollitt Oct 30 '13 at 13:04

Yes, both the 1.8G and 1.4G lenses have a rubber seal on the mount.

You can see it on Ken Rockwell's review. It is the raised, thin black strip just outside the metal mount.
