    Taken with another E-M5 and Leica 25mm. Weathersealing FTW!

    Some people swallow swords, others stick pencils up their noses &, as it seems, give their camera a shower. :confused: 

    I'm sorry, but what was the point of this? :confused:  Essentially, because of the mic & speaker openings, we shouldn't assume it is all weatherproof to the abusive amount, but quite capable of withstanding a shower of rain when held in the upright position. I realise that if it has had some salt spray that it needs to be cleaned off & probably without the battery if there is any chance of inundation, but I don't think Olympus would bother fixing your camera if this shower you gave it caused a problem. :rolleyes:

    That is no rubber seal around the lens mount - how do you know the saran wrap wasn't torn while placing the cap on the body? Without the accompanying sealed lens that seems to be inviting a non-warranty, expensive service claim, hope it doesn't come back to bite you!

    Just goes to show some folk will do most anything no matter how poorly it relfects on their cognitive alacrity.
