How water proof is Weather Proof OMD EM5?

Now a few of you own an OMD EM-5, and Robin Wong has flagrantly taken his over a babbling brook, just how waterproof do you think it is?

I think this will be my upgrade now because I take a lot of sailing shots: the 12-50 will be okay to start with, in fact cover a lot of on-water focal legnth I need and I need deep DOF.

So I am talking about a wave breaking on the hull or quay: a couple of kilos of the wet stuff may wash over the camera.

Also - will this be as dust proof as the big FT E5 ?
