My primary use for a serious compact is bikepacking and bushwalking where being able to cope with rain, coming off in the odd floodway, smashing on rocks etc is very handy (I have cracked the screen on my Olympus XZ-1 in the past). My current serious compact is a Panasonic LX100 but it is in pieces due to a small repair issue :)

Hence the forthcoming TG-5 caught my interest and I thought it might also be of interesting to bicycle tourists ... a 1" or 4/3 sensor would have been nice but. I am also wondering if a second-hand TG-4 might be an option more so given the TG-5 is likely to have a AU$649 retail price?

Anyway any thoughts on the new TG-5 or comments from TG-4 users or other tough cameras?

If nothing else it adds another option to the mix I guess.
