I had both the TG1 and TG2.  (Also had the Canon D10.)

The TG2 is without a doubt the most flexible and useable camera in this class ("tough" cams).  You can control some settings, the burst rate is good, and you have the option of add-on lenses.  None of these "tough" cams have decent IQ, but the TG2 is as good as any of them (although I got some pretty nice IQ shots on dry land with the CanonD10).

If you want to move up, the Nikon 1 AW1 with interchangeable lenses is a real step up, but of course it costs a lot more, and the waterproof lenses have no image stabilization (nor does the body).

I think the TG2 is your best option in this class.
