I was shooting a glamour set in Spain with a couple of Nikon F5s when a wave from a motor boat knocked me of balance and dunked one of the Nikons in the water.

It got really hot very quickly and smelt most peculiar. It never worked again and Nikon said to junk it. I suppose that's a bit extreme and not really a test of weather resistance.

My GH2 has got wet many times without ill effects - so I suppose the GH3 should be OK for most uses, if not dipping in the ocean.

Why is it popular suddenly? For the same reason at one time cars were advertised for the coefficient of wind resistance - fashion.
