Friend of mine just ruined an Olympus Pen (EP1?) on a kayaking trip because the plastic housing tore a seam.

Fortunately he wants to buy an OM-D E-M5, and will now!

I wish some manufacturer would make a better waterproof camera. We don't really need cameras that can be dropped from 50 feet, we need cameras that are waterproof and will float.

already one as you mention the E-M5 is a waterproof camera just expensive and large

as far as I know there is no weather seal pancake lens only that large 12-50mm which is not only large but also not very good

That E-M5 with a weather seal pancake will be a perfect large sensor waterproof camera

Is the E-M5 really WATERPROOF? I thought it was just rated "environmentally sealed. I would expect it to keep out dust and light rain but I would not expect to take on the kayak where it could get dunked underwater.

It's waterproof enough that you won't have to towel off your hands before taking it out of its Pelican box.
