I want to buy a ruggedized, waterproof digital camera in the vein of the Canon D-10 or the Olympus Stylus Tough series.

Can anyone give some first hand experience and insight into the cameras? I envision primarily backpacking, mountain biking, snorkeling/swimming and maybe eventually some diving. If I ever dive I will get the additional hard case to guarantee WP, but I do expect the camera to stand up to being in the water for hours at a time "as is", no additional cases. I was leaning towards the Stylus but reviews I've read online say it's really slow and unresponsive, and there are conflicting reviews on image quality of the Olympus vs the Canon.

Let's hear the low down.

You can start here, but most of these have had updated models released since this test.
