Any opinions on image quality for the WG-1 vs the WG-2.

Am interested in the Pentax WG-2 or the Panasonic Lumix TS-3 or TS-4 since both have time lapse capability and am hoping to get some feed back from the forum[s].

I bought the WG-2 for use as a fishing camera, as well as for touristy trips where I didn't feel like lugging around my Pentax K-X DSLR kit. Can't really vouch for the any IQ difference between the WG-1 and WG-2, but I would guess the WG-2 is probably slightly better.

Without going into a full-blown review, once I got the WG-2 and tweaked the settings to my preference (that's important), it's turned out to be a nice camera and I feel perfectly fine leaving the DSLR at home most of the time now. I mean, if it's an indoor evening concert of my kids, then I'm bringing the DSLR, but otherwise, the WG-2 has become my go-everywhere camera.
