Hi Matt,

Seems the 7D is one tough customer! 

The 5D2/3 has the same seals as a 7D. All of those pictures you have linked to from google images, I have done with my 5D2. including shooting it in rivers and under a waterfall. I've fallen 30 yards down a hillside and bashed the prism into a rock only removing some paint. I've shot it all day in the rain covering events as well. The camera works just fine. I don't baby my camera, it's a tool and tools get abused.

I suspect that the person in the first link switched lenses, opened the card door or battery door while shooting in the rainy conditions. Once you do this to any of them, all best are off on weather sealing. But neither the 7D or 5D is in the same league as a 1D series camera.
