Re: 7D Ruggedness

The 7D is a pretty good camera but it doesn't set my world on fire.

I had one which got rained on. The camera has good sealing everywhere except the shutter release button which acts as a significant entry point for moisture. The water wrecked the main board and when I questioned Canon's marketing of "weather sealed" they replied with "it's weather resistant"

I ended up buying another one which I take much better care of.

So take the weather sealed term with a grain of salt. having a sealed lens doesn't improve the shortcomings of the shutter release.
