First time I did something stupid, was sit on the edge of a seal sanctuary pool, and have the seals during feeding time splash my D80 with 18-70 DX lens attached, I continued to take pictures, and as soon as I had time, asked for a towel to clean of the salt water that had completely splashed the combo.
My second story, I have been sitting on the side of the Zandvoort race circuit when A1-GP was in Holland (last time before it went bankrupt). I was so ignorant to just take out the camera in heavy rain for all day with the D80 and 70-300VR lens attached. I came home dried my camera, and nothing was wrong with it in both cases of water abuse.
