Thing is, if they repair or replace it and I go out in the rain again - and it fills up again, will they repair it a second time? It's the uncertainty that's the problem. On the other hand, if they find a missing seal, that's better, because there's a reason the water got in.
Just a thought. Since I operated the zoom lens when I was in the rain, that would have caused a suction when the lens went out. I wonder if this bit of a vacuum pulled water in to the camera? Maybe it would be better to leave the zoom lens in just one position, when is raining?

Maybe it pulled in highly humid air, instead of water? Well, the air has to go in and out as you operate the zoom ring.

But to get to the top LCD in 15 minutes, you'd have to zoom a lot...
