This was taken in the Farnes with the 16mm pancake lens, and two Inon Z240s.

My problem with the olys, is that they are always class lagging in slow autofocus time, and long total shutter lag.
The sonys and the pany gf1 blow the olys away in this regard.
In this area, long shutter lags are one of THE most annoying, hair pulling problems in UW photo.
The epl1 has a full autofocus lag of .95 seconds, while the others are down around .4 each.

Having tested both the E-PL1 and the Sony NEX-5 in the field (underwater in the Oly and Nauticam housings) I can assure you that shutter lag is the same between the cameras when used with like lenses of the same speed, (max f/stop). With firmware 1.1 the Olympus had shutter lag times in the 0.4 range in the DP Review tests.

I figured the OP was open to a compact, affordable system, since it started with, "what I have found so far is..."

I have played with both the Nauticam and 10Bar housings and the Nauticam just felt right, button in the right place that worked. Personally I didn't like the build quality, it looked like an electric box -sorry 10Bar.
