Default Canon D10 or Pentax W90?

I'm looking for an outdoor camera for hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, and I'm debating between these two cameras. I'd just like to get some thoughts/opinions from folks who have used the D10 or, in the case of the brand-new W90, its predecessor, the W80.

Both cameras are very good, although, the Canon D-10 seems to have the edge.

Sarah, do you mean in terms of picture quality?

I did find this snapshot comparison, but it doesn't speak to image quality.

Yes, I was referring to image quality. Please keep in mind that any underwater camera due to the engineering required, suffers an inherent reduction in image quality.
