So Canon sent me photos of the internals. There is definitely some corrosion, but to me appears to be from condensation. Honestly, that is the only possible cause as the camera has simply never been in water/rain.

I've shot in the rain and snow - without an L-series lens, but just making sure the lens and mount are covered - and with a battery grip attached (so sealing on the bottom is compromised). I have had zero issues, and I'm not afraid to take it out when it's snowing or when raining lightly. I do, however, keep a couple large pouches of silia gel in my camera bags.
