Isn't the E-M1 (and 12-40) supposed to be waterproof?
They are designed to be weather-resistant ie able to withstand rain etc, but they are not designed to be submersible. Mind you, I've submerged 4/3 lenses in a river before and not a drop of water has entered, and I've washed my 4/3 cameras under a tap many a time and nothing has gotten in. I haven't tried that with the E-M1 yet, but it sounds pretty resistant based on that tale. What may have happened is that the lens got damaged in the fall and allowed water to enter.
Note to self "don't buy anything from ozray" .. lol
Just kidding =).
At least we know it's clean. That's a really interesting story.
No one is getting any of my gear, it's all been torture tested, proven and just run in. Get your own!
