...wouldn’t it?

Not interchangeable lenses, of course, because we're talking about something like the Oly "tough" series or the Panny FT series -- something that's completely sealed in a hard case.

The Oly and Panny 2.33 sensor cams in this category have 4x or 5x zoom. In fact, with an m43 sensor, a 2x or 3x zoom would be fine -- underwater you really don't want a long zoom and on land, up to your knees in the swamp, maybe you could get longer effective reach by cropping so that you could keep yourself out of the crocodile's maw.

Make a great complement to your primary m43 cam with its interchangeable lenses.

Cheers, geoff
