How many of you would buy a waterproof micro 4/3 camera?

I'm surprised that one hasn't come out yet.

I would.

I still have the old film version of the Nikon AW1 - the AW or Action Touch.

I could take that camera anywhere. It is not just about going underwater at the beach, there are many other situations where one needs a completely sealed body and lens.

The current waterproof cameras, AW1 excepted, are just too low in image quality.

The current issue of Photo News has an article by Canadian photographer Michelle Valberg using the AW1 for underwater video when she was photographing whales.

A fixed-lens/zoom 4/3 sized sensor body would also do the job.
