5D Mk II is water resistant

An article suggested that this camera is not well sealed. http://www.luminous-landscape.com:80/essays/antarctica-2009-worked.shtml

But it is. According to Canon's White Paper:

weather-resistant rubber flaps cover these connectors. the weather and dust seals have been improved around the battery compartments and memory card doors, and increased precision in the alignment of the magnesium alloy external cover seams and in the optimal design of camera parts and structures contribute to the cameras’ dust and water resistance. Internal gaskets and sealing materials are used extensively at the cameras’ buttons, tripod sockets, and surrounding the LCDs. As a result, the EOS 5D Mark II now has dust and water resistance that isalmost equal to that of the EOS-1N—Canon’s top-of-the-line professional 35mm SLR for most of the 1990’s.
