Pentax Optio – (insert curse here)

Is not the Optio by Pentax the biggest shaft ever put to a paddlers hide? I'm on my 3rd. The W60 is the first one that actually stayed working for more than one season. Working, just long enough for the lens to do it's impersonation of the record from Monty Python's Hungarian phrasebook sketch. "I will not by this camera, It is scratched." Of course it is. There's no freaking lens cap!
