I was going to agree with MichaelBernard when I made a search for weather sealed canon cameras and found that link and I always had believed that only the 1 Series had that kind of build to make it in that kind of weather ,Well it nice to learn that canon makes some well built cameras.

MichaelBernard that was my expression when I saw the article.
It's just been posted like 11ty billion times brother. Each time the legend of the unbreakable 7d grows...
It's not true...simply not true. The 7d is weather resistant, but in no way, shape, form, or schroom induced dream walk could it ever stand toe to toe with the kind of weather conditions that would give a 1d-series camera a run for it's money and come out working.
This is why reviews like that need to be taken with a grain of salt the size of a baseball. Will it stand up to a light drizzle, powder, cold, heat, etc? Sure. Will it stand up to a torrential downpour, wet snow, extreme humidity, sand, mud, dust, etc? Nope. I've had my 1ds in a torrential downpour and -17 degree weather before and I at it's worst I only lost the refresh rate of the LCD inside of 30 minutes (cold) but the camera itself kept on shooting with zero issues.
The seal is hilarious though
