I posted previously asking about water-repellent coatings on the glass on the top-end Panasonic Lumix and eventually went for the Olympus TG-2 which does have this. Not disappointed. Sheds water drops very well. Quite a lot of noise reduction programming which will not be to everyone's taste and colours very punchy - again a matter of taste. It is very quick (both in terms of being ready to take a photo after switching on, and in the traditional sense - it has a f2.0 lens). This is an atmospheric shot from Haida Gwaii taken in full colour (no tweaking on the computer)! I actually only had 1.5 days of rain in an 18 day period in the second half of May.
