This is a great camera if you want to take basic photos anywhere. I was hoping to not have to rely on my cellphone for kayaking and biking photos. I also paint on canvas using my photography and my phone has been perfect for that. So I'm disappointed. I did a lot of research before I bought it.
Pros - Incredibly sturdy and fairly easy to use. It is indeed waterproof and I think it is a good size. You can see it underwater and it works under water.
Cons - Maybe its me but it takes so so photos. I used both my cell (Samsung S5) and this camera at the same time on occasions to see if there was a difference. I believe there is. I can take on the fly sunrise shots at the beach with birds flying by (generis setting) and capture beautiful pictures with an airborn bird frozen mid flight. TG-860 The same picture with have far less color (programmed or in auto) and the birds are just a blurr. (I put both photos into the Olympus app on my computer so I could put them here.)
Bottom line if you just wantto capture a moment or even a video this camera will do especially in weather extremes or in the water. If you want to take really beautiful pictures on the fly, use your phone. You'll risk losing your phone however.
Pictures below are essentially a side by side comparison. The first is my Samsung Galaxy S5. The one on the right is this TG-860 camera. You get what you pay for I suppose.
UPDATE AUGUST 31, 2015
I must have been doing something wrong with my earlier pictures. I have taken a lot more pictures since my earlier review and I have to admit I'm getting better shots. I am also getting more comfortable with the settings but "auto" tends to wirk for most shots on the fly. So I am liking this camera more every time I use it. I often have it mounted on my kayak and I even filmed my first dolphins while kayaking. So if you are still tossing the coin on getting one of these, I feel comfortable suggesting you buy one. I convinced a kayak buddy to get one and she is a very good photographer and likes it as much as her fancy Nikon DSLR she paid several times more to take similar pictures. I suggest reading the instructions and figure out what works best for you. It also downloads using WiFi quite well. The last 4 pictures were taken within the last week mounted on a bobbing kayak using one hand. So hopefully you can makea better decision after reading this.
But even though it says "waterproof" right there on the front --- nope. Took it to the Galapagos. Once in a lifetime trip. Tested it for a week to start -- but didn't splash it in the water. My failure, because three weeks later, in its SECOND snorkel adventure, the screen crapped out. Done. Faint line. Then the screen went entirely dark. And of course by the time I got back home, any warranty is long gone...
Trip of a lifetime, taking photos by "ear.' Which goes like this: press power button, then listen closely to hear if the shutter clicks when you aim in the direction of the thing you want to photograph...
9 feet max depth. I rinsed it. I put it into rice. Two other people on the boat with the same camera with THE SAME PROBLEM.
So disappointed. My first and last Olympus. Glad I didn't buy the more expensive newer model. They ought to be ashamed to call this thing "tough."

Update: now back from the Maldives and I can honestly say that the camera and I get along just fine! I soon got the hang of the smorgasbord of options. I can also confirm that it worked perfectly under water, taking clear pictures as well as films. No issues whatsoever. Having the on/off button right next to the shutter button can be a bit of a nuisance at times, as its easy to switch the camera off by accident instead of taking a picture. However, once you done it a dozen times or so, you'll soon learn.... haha! Happy to upgrade to 5* now.
