Pentax added an image stabilization system when upgrading their rugged WG line—a big plus in our opinion. The newer model is slightly heavier than its predecessor, however, which was already a bit bulkier to begin with. Pentax has continued to offer the circle of LCD lights around the lens for macro shots, something that's unique to this line. Overall, we expect this to be a pretty capable rugged model.
