Re:Waterproof vs. water resistant vs dustproof...

Yeah, I hadn't thought about all the various water designations.

We are careful to only operate the camera where it's dusty and move out to the office and showroom areas where it's clean (even a different air system) to change SD cards, bateries, etc.

I tried my underwater housing with my G9, and found it was too awkward to operate. Two different people dropped it!

I'm currently going to try the Olympus Stylus TG-2. Though the optics aren't as nice, the lens is faster than any other rugged cameras I could find and they chat up the dustproofiness. I'll have a real good test of that attribute shortly!

Thanks for the insight, it's appreciated.
