I'm looking for IQ a few steps above the Tough series, or the Panasonic TS3. Like a ruggedised X100 maybe.

A commenter on 43rumors.com summed it up pretty well.

"As an outdoor enthusiast I’d love to have a full featured small camera with weather seals and rugged build quality. I’d happily pay a lot for it if they’d just make it. As of right now if I want a camera that can survive the elements I have to buy either a 2lb DSLR or a tiny waterproof P&S with horrible image quality . m4/3′s practically begs to be a hikers camera but they’ve yet to make a model that can withstand the abuse I can put it through."
