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

I would!

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

I'm not. It's a pretty niche thing and people serious about underwater photography, not me, are most likely scuba diving and buying housings for "real" cameras.

I'm considering a Nikon AW1 to replace an Olympus TG1, which I've been mostly pleased with. The image quality is quite good for a P&S. A larger sensor and ability to shoot RAW are the biggest draws of the AW1 for me.

…at around $1000. interesting.

Yeah, $1000 for the two lens kit. Not bad. I can't see needing anything else, either.

Maybe just the zoom and skip the prime to save a few bucks.
