Totally agree. I'd be totally happy if only Olympus would make a "serious" ruggedized camera - a 4/3 sensor with a fixed lens - heaven knows they have already proven the body-technology, so why not a larger sensor version for semi-pro who don't want a 1-2kg underwater housing for carrying on a hike, surfing or fishing trip?

The only reason that I can think of as to why they haven't made one is that because by design it is less prone to the elements, and should last a really long time, it doesn't have nearly as much built-in obsolescence.
