60mm not splashproof??

I had my E-M5mkii out in woodland on a showery day. It wasn't heavy rain, but the gear was getting a bit of a shower on it. Not for long, maybe 10 minutes. I ended shooting a focus bracket shot & when I got back and checked the images, the last ones were just blank. Had a play with the camera and the lens was just clicking and not focussing and generally misbehaving. Dried it out and all seems fine now.

I've had a bit of bother with the setup misbehaving in the rain before, but I put it down to "need to reboot the camera" type of stuff.

Anyone had this? The lens is meant to be splashproof - I know that's not a precise definition, but a bit of a rainshower should be ok surely? Should I send it off and get the seals checked out?

Cheers Alf. In that case I may send it in to get the seals checked.
