Pentax Q = Perferct divers camera ?

The way I see it, A Pentax Q with a good quality housing for underwater use (down to 40 meters) wound offer:

  • Image Quality equal or better to that of an LX3

  • The choice of lenses that are small and compact

  • A full gear, camera + lens + housing that is small and lightweight

Now, I would like the Q lens lineup to also include a small-sized macro, but for me, if an underwater housing ever got made, the Q could be the perfect underwater camera for my diving needs!

Edit: I just noticed they will be offering a $129 Fisheye.

Quite possibly so.

I would figure a super wide angle lens would be needed for this application as well. But I'm not sure how that would pan out on such a small sensor.

BTW, I have absolutely no knowledge of underwater photography so grain of salt here.
