I'm looking for people experienced in shooting in rain using weather sealed cameras. You said you've shot with yours. Just once? How long did you shoot before you got it out of the rain? Was there any fogging on the lens? How heavy was the rain? What lens was it?

The only people who normally shoot in heavy rain are photojournalists, sports photographers and occasionally professional wildlife photographers.  Normally heavy rain = bad light = poor photos unless you absolutely have to get the shot.

Watch a sports event in heavy rain on TV and see how many professional photographers are shooting without a rain jacket.
