Pentax Optio 43WR review

Got what must be the last one on sale in the UK and I love it. I needed a camera for those times I would not be taking the *istD out of it bag (rain, sand, dust, etc) and its superb.
Image quality is a lot better than I expected though probably not as good as some of the best 4MP cams. However its more than adequate.
Construction and handling are a lot better than I expected too. Surprised how easy it is to hold and use.

Problems:

LCD is too hard to see in bright light. Wish it had Av mode.
