Bad idea to rinse lenses with light shower?
2

I sometimes go out in the dusty outdoors (car racing etc) I find my camera and lenses are coated with fine dust.

I get the urge to rinse them with my water in my waterbottle onsite but never had guts to do it. I do know that Oly lenses and cameras are known with their weather resistance but I never intentionally took my camera out in rain. Its really an emergency feature for me.

So, what do you guys think? I am specifically talking about the weather resistant lenses. 12-40 pro (ver1) 7-14 pro, 60 macro, 100-400 Olympus to name them.
