The wg-40w is essentially a wg-2 with WiFi. There hasn't been a newly-developed WG series camera since the WG-3; they've all been respins.

I'd look at offerings from Nikon, Olympus, and Sony if you're looking for a more recent waterproof compact.

The microscope mode and the leds on the lens make this camera great

what is best about this camera is the microscope mode with ring lights --any suggestions?
