Nikon AW130 vs Panasonic DMC-TS5

Hi All,

May will be a big month because I am upgrading all my gear! Husband planned a trip with our son, they forgot to ask Mom if SHE wanted to go, knew it was my golden opportunity to negotiate new gear instead of a bachelor trip of beer and ham radio equipment!

So I am upgrading the Nikon D90 to D7200 and recently my 5 year old Panasonic TS2 started humming. So when I look at the Nikon AW130 vs Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS5 they compare really to close to call, I guess when it comes down to it which is more durable? As I said the Panasonic lasted 5 years and I never did anything with the O rings but make sure they were clean. But I wonder, did I get lucky? I also suspect that if I have a customer service issue, Nikon will be more helpful.

Anyone have any experience with either?
