For heavy rain I think you will just always be better brining something designed with the intention of being used in that sort of weather. A mainline dSLR outdoor camera from Nikon or Canon is usually what I go with.
The lenses are not sealed too.
I remember Leica claiming the mount is sealed since it has a tight fit...well good luck with that.
