Yeah, sure, as long as your lifestyle call for a tough cam, then the tradeoffs are acceptable and justifiable. Most people's lifestyle may not justify that tradeoff. Two other quick points: if I fall at high speed on my bike, my camera would be the last thing I will be thinking about, just saying... And a good cyclocross bike is very worthy on the road... I actually feel that current "toughs" are more akin to a mountain bike with smooth tires, sure, they roll, but the bike is really too heavy and too inefficient to be good on pavement, and it is not good on the trail either. But you still can ride it as fast your legs can go.

My point was that, if I can stretch this analogy to a breaking point, a lot of people buy a full suspension mountain bike and then ride it on the asphalt... I am still waiting for a "cyclocross bike" camera.
