I just got an Olympus TG-3 and really like it. I'm just getting started, so can't offer a lot of technical evaluation.

I bought the Olympus TG-3 for my recent trip to Kaua'i. The image quality and operation is good enough, but I can firmly say that it really is a tough camera. I unintentionally abused this thing quite a bit, and it always worked.







Here's an out-of-water image, included so you can peep at the pixels. The problem in the upper right corner is from grains of sand that were stuck to the lens.


You can follow the links to see full-resolution versions and a couple other images. The pictures of Bethany Hamilton were not taken with the Olympus TG-3. One thing that was important to me was that the lens is a constant f/2.0.
