Unfortunatly with it's main advantage of being manual zoom, there no sturdy housing for it @ this time:

With the EWA one can not go too deep to take any good pictures because of the lack of contrast, unless one can dive under a large corral for example to use it as a 'darkened studio' and maximize the flash effect! One can always snorkel by night...

Not to say that there's plenty in the work, but it'll probably cost more than the camera itself once it'll go retail. You're better off picking up an Olympus underwater combo which is very popular in the Carribean, and serve as your 2nd camera as well, it's cheaper! (and they take long lasting rechargeable AA NiMh, since you don't want to change batteries underwater)
