I've bought a TG-1, but it has 2 flaws - one of which has prevented its use since purchase. The First is its lens, which has clever coatings and is F2 too - but which has NO PROTECTION. Solution: buy an Olympus TLA-CO1 Converter Adaptor and fit a Lens cap - or a 40.5mm UV filter AND a lens cap - but WHY did I have to buy one from fleaBay? WHY don't Olympus include one in the box...?
Second: It is a well-sealed camera and I will buy a PT-053 housing (also on eBay), for deeper dives. But WHY only provide an "On-board" charging system? Having one latched & locked cover open to charge it - for 2 hours at a time - allows moisture & dust ingress past all the O-ring protection - thus negating it. Why is there no separate charger & spare battery, in the box? Unlocking the baseplate for a swift battery change WOULD allow less nastiness to invade the innards - so I've had to buy these items separately. Guess where...?
But WHY should we have to buy all these (essential) extras?
