    Bakewell Carnival preparations are slightly interrupted by torrential rain, but the show went on.

    Made with an E-M5 and new Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom. It is a good thing both were weather sealed and they performed fine while the cold rain was falling. But then it stopped, and when the hot sun came out the humidity returned and the front element of the 12-35mm fogged up on the inside and the E-M5 viewfinder fogged on the inside. I guess there is no way to keep humid air out of the camera and the effect was the same as putting a cold wet camera under your warm coat, something you should never do. But it's ones of those things where the weather has the last laugh on weathersealing:smile:
