G3/9-18mm steaming up inside

While holding my G3 with my left hand on the attached 9-18mm in standard posture for around 5 minutes, I noticed the LCD images became very hazy as if looking through frosted glass.

After a bit of head scratching I detached the lens and noticed condensation on the rear element. It cleared after around 10 seconds but was a little worrying nevertheless.

I assumed it was sweat from my hand.

My G3 is new but I've never had problems like this with Olympus E520 in the 3 years I've been using it. Anyone else experienced something like this - it seems to be a build quality issue
