Well, I'm not surprised at your experience. "Spashproof" is a pretty vague term, which I tend to take as less than a rain shower. I don't have either the EM-5 or EM-1 but my Panasonic GH3 doesn't look all that immune to water as I look it over. And I believe it is "Splashproof", too.

My GPS receivers (hiking, not automobile) have some very specific waterproof rating (IX7 or some such). I've seen no such rating on any of the m4/3 bodies.
