Question Pentax Optio W20

Hi all- i was just wondering if anyone owns or knows a little about this camera?
I was just wondering is the waterproof up to 5ft worth choosing this camera over say the canon equivalent? also does anyone know if the waterproofing covers salt water? it does say in the add:
perfect for 'marine sports' now I'm pretty sure marine is salt water so...?
and the macro thing is cool- up to an inch i believe so... and 7MP is well good! so it seems to be a very good camera all round...? are there any flaws that aren't immediately noticeable? Basically I'm planning to use this for just out and about photography when carrying my 350D would be an effort! lol - and as i said the macro thing is very useful as I'm starting to go into macro photography... and i was thinking i could take good macro shots of my friends marine fish underwater?
thanks for any help!

I have the WPi and they are definitely safe in saltwater.
