Rugged Compact Enthusiast Camera?

Does anyone know of a small, rugged, enthusiast-level camera? Are there any small weather-sealed cameras, with quality fast lenses, and manual controls? E.g. a weather-sealed X100 or DP1 type camera (fixed lens, large sensor), or weather-sealed XZ-1 or LX5 type camera. I'm thinking that the fixed lens type would be much easier to make, but no-one seems to make one.
