Yes, only 1D series is weather sealed and no, 5D is not.


What we see depends mainly on what we look for.

and in some senses yes i bet they can but i have this thing where when i take something apart it breaks. for example, i took my frame off my paintball marker one time to put on a new frame and when i put it all back together and happy all it did was leak air like crazy so i had to send it in to fix it cause i wasnt a gun tech. now i pretty good care of my xti atm and ya know when its dirty i give a good clean ..but i dunno man dust and sand --and mud --mirrors n'stuff i dunno..it'll probably blow up in my hand.

Scare tactics put forth by the folks that clean them for a living (and a good living it is). No big deal really.
