Last time I shot in the rain for about 1-2 hours some moisture appeared under the top LCD screen but otherwise no issues.... It's probably not the best idea to trust the weather sealing.

I think I did something stupid yesterday, I brought my camera out of my home and did not realize that it was really humid, I tried to stop for a while on the door just to let my camera adjust properly but my viewfinder/lcd/front of lens still had moisture (I needed to wipe it off since I could not see thru it properly). Should I be worried?

Same thing happened 1 year ago with my 500D, I was also concerned about it but I believe it did not cause any damage. But this gets me really worried, what possible problems would this cause? And how would I prevent them?

Thanks!

It's not a problem, it's natural physics phenomenon, it's the fast change in temperature and humidity between your house and outside which can create condensation ;) it will go after a while, usually when all parts of the camera reach the ambient temperature

In the future, you can stick your camera in a ziplock, then take it outside to acclimate to the temperatures, then pull it out, no condensation... Same principle when you switch fish to a different tank. :)

I know its normal but I was just worried about the gear getting damaged from it.
So no need to worry about it as long as it won't happen always right? Since my 500D was fine I wish the 5D3 would handle such event with no problems at all.
