I mean the whole camera set will be waterproof against splashing water?

This is an unresolved question.

There are differences between the mounts - both between the makes and, within each make.

I have asked this question many times over the years but there does not seem to be any definite answer.

I have an Olympus body with one sealed Olympus lens and one sealed Panasonic lens. The lenses have different size mounts and the placement of the gasket is different.

With the Olympus lens mounted, the rear gasket comes right to the edge of the lens mount. The Panasonic does not.

Hopefully, someone with a larger assortment of sealed lenses can tell us.
