Looks like the lens is a significant upgrade - 25mm instead of 28mm FF equivalent, and f/2 instead of f/3.5 at the wide end. I wonder if IQ is any better than the WG-1?

The 25mm lens just may be the ticket for me...........I use a camera in my kayak for taking pictures of my catch and the extra wider angle would be a plus.

My only concern: Last year I bought the WG-2 and the videos were completely blown out on a sand dune trip. Perhaps it was user error, but my Sony would've handled it beautifully without any settings adjustments.

I had to download the manual from the international site to find out that Time Lapse Interval shooting is limited to 1000 frames. If it was without limit I'd have ordered one right away. 1000 frames at 25fps would make your movie 40 seconds long maximum. For this reason I'll save my money and look elsewhere.
