Saw the Meikon on eBay but decided just to get a Dicapac for my more limited uses
In reply to lesnag2, Mar 2, 2013

I saw the Meikon case for RX-100 advertised on the USA eBay site for the first time today - at least that I've seen.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/130ft-40m-Underwater-waterproof-case-Housing-for-SONY-DSC-RX100-RX100-camera-/251237538761?ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1123

I decided to take a different route since my uses are just for beach/boating protection and a bit of snorkeling. I'm just going to use my Canon 300HS again for snorkeling as I already own the Canon dive case for it. I'd rather use the RX-100 but doing snorkeling but I'm not going to spend the money for a case for it this year. My underwater photo opportunities are pretty limited and not real close up in any event. Plus the Canon case will be a little smaller and I only go snorkeling 2 or 3 times a year during a single March vacation each year.

I also bought a Dicapac for the RX-100. I plan on using this while carrying the camera at the beach, including swimming at the beach, and when doing a day sail where we're sitting in an area of a catamaran subject to being splashed frequently. While the Dicapac claims to be waterproof to the depths I dive down while snorkeling I just don't trust it with my $600 camera - so I'll stick with the lesser Canon P&S in the dive case for that.
