5D III weather resistance?
9 months ago

I'm a photojournalist and was shooting with my two new 5D III bodies out in the rain yesterday. I was fighting like heck to keep them dry, but the blowing rain had different ideas. One of the bodies stopped twice with something like a "err-01 card" reading. I wiped it off and dried it as best I could in the supersaturated air conditions and it stared working again both times.

I "protected" them in trash bags, but I forgot to bring a towel. (Dope slap on the back of my head.)

My question to 5D III users is, how weather resistant is your 5D III? Opinions and war stories are welcome. I guess they are better than the 5D II, but not as good as the 1D bodies.
