Conclusion: We are torn. We recommended the TG-1, and we started off really loving the TG-2. Nice images and fast performance in a rugged point-and-shoot – or any point-and-shoot, for that matter – can be difficult to come by, but the TG-2 handles with aplomb.
Summary: Olympus Stylus Tough TG-2 is the flagship rugged camera from Olympus. It distinguishes itself by being one of the toughest cameras available and by having the brightest lens, tied with the Pentax WG-3 Pentax WG-3 , among waterproof cameras.
Pros: Bright F/2 Lens, Low noise until ISO 400, Nicely saturated colors, Balanced metering, Quick autofocus, Fast and responsive, Fine zoom steps, Good LCD visibility, Superb waterproof construction, Very good battery-life, Good ergonomics
Cons: General image softness, Limited use high-ISO, Below average AWB, Limited dynamic-range, Strong vignetting, Noticeable zoom lag, Slow lens on wide-end, No image parameters, Impossible to setup video framing
