How weatherproof is the E-M5?
Aug 13, 2012

In a recent thread, very different opinions were expressed about the extent to which the E-M5 is weatherproofed. A couple of people said that they had doubts about the E-M5's ability to withstand a heavy fog and that Oly's claim that is is weatherproofed was little more than marketing hype. Others claimed that the E-M5 could readily withstand having a bottle of water poured on it.

As a new E-M5 owner who has never had a camera with any level of weatherproofing before, I would appreciate opinions from those who are more knowledgeable about this topic. Under what moisture conditions do/would you feel comfortable using your E-M5? Have you used your E-M5 in the rain with or without problems?

Thanks, Michael
