I do my share of diving and UW photography / filming.

Camera's with LiveView are much more usefull underwater, than the K10D IMO.
You have to look through your mask and through the UW housing through the viewfinder, that is very hard. Most photographers work in multishot mode, moving in on the subject and are hoping that one of the photos has the right composure, focus, etc.

Perhaps that with the new K2*/*D series we can expect a serious UW offering by/for Pentax users.

Lake Saint Clair snorkeling was incredible this past late summer and early fall.
