My Pentax Optio W30 has finally become too long in the tooth - fine scratches on the glass and the batteries are past it. What I loved about it was the water repellent glass. My newer Canon D10 is completely crap in this regard (and too big). Most photos take on the water are useless if the glass has been splashed or kept in a soft non-waterproof case in my PFD pocket for quick access. So the absence of water repellent glass is now a deal-breaker for me. The Olympus TG-830 and its more expensive brother the TG-2 both have water repellent coverings on the lens (unlike the TG-630). I like the look of them but the various reviews I have come across on the web (e.g www.dpreview.com, which did a comparison of waterproof point and shoots a couple of years ago) put the Panasonic Lumix cameras at the top of the pile. The current incarnation of the Pentax waterproof point and shoots does rather badly. The company's web info on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS5 (similar specs to the TG-2) does NOT specify whether or not there is any water repellent covering on the glass. Does anyone have any definitive info on the Panasonic in this regard? Or useful comments regarding water repellent characteristics of other cameras' glass? Thanks.
