Would this Olympus camera provide any better IQ than the Pentax Optio W90 that I have now and is starting to get a little beat up?

I'm sure that the TG-1 should have better image quality. The last decent waterproof Pentax was the W60. The W80 had slightly worse image quality at full size and then came the W90 which not was any better. WG-1 and WG-2 have not impressed me either.

The Powershot D20 is good too with even lower NR than the TG-1. But lens is much slower at the wide end.

Though the older Pentax Optio 33WR was rather good except for slightly undersaturated colors. Luckily there was image parameters to deal with that.

The shape of the body was odd but quite nice to use actually after having got used to it.
