I went out and shot the Super moon eclipse back in October. By camera and lens ended up wetter than either of those two cameras in the pictures, thanks to the dew forming on them. Ended up wiping them off with a microfiber cloth I had in the camera bag. It being dark, and using a remote release I didn't really notice until I finished. That was a 50D/BG-E2N Sigma 150-600 C. Both continue to work fine.

Just open the door facing down, and you should be okay. Also, only a handful of lenses have rear seals when compared to all the possible lenses you can use, so those without, water can get in at any time, unfortunately.

Thanks folks. I had the shoot today and did get a very light sprinkle, maybe a little less than the photos shown, and no problems. Had the 70-200mm f4L IS on it, brought it inside, shut off, blotted with tissue, and within an hour it was dry.

Cheating death,

Yes, what Mark said. Cheap insurance.

Second. Op/Tech makes the cheapest and one of the best, like a form-fitting baggie. Lens Coat makes the best higher end one IMO, but the OpTechs are cheap, reusable a couple of time, and the simplest on and off the camera.

Cool thanks. I'll add one to my cart for my next Amzn order. I've had an Optec wrist strap before, and for $9 it was a great buy. Now I just carry with no strap at all! Don't trip!!!
