Nikon 1 AW1

Anybody use one yet? Interchangeable lens camera that is supposed to be waterproof. The new Nikonos?

haven't. But I've ben shooting an olympus omd em-5 for several months, and I can say the weather sealing is bomber. wet gloves, splashes, sitting out in the rain, I've had no issues.

cameras are finally catching up to the conditions we put 'em through. the high iso performance is also a huge factor.

Saw it at CES - pretty impressive! I went with the Pentax WG-3 as I am a simple sort. My last camera (a Fuji) spent half an hour lodged between rocks in a class 3 rapid. After that it had issues with condensation. I just can't quite justify the price for the Nikon since loss and significant abuse are not out of the question.

The Pentax K-3 is pretty much waterproof with something like 80 seals, and quite a few different lenses to choose from. I've been shooting with the K-5, which is also weather sealed, for over 2 years now. Water, dust, and cold proof is a major plus for me. Check this out:
this is the K-30 which is an older and cheaper version.
