You have to be very careful to not get any salt water into the battery/card area. The terminals corrode and/or get coated. The terminals that contact the battery and the card are easily bent and cleaning them without breaking them is difficult. All this depends on maintaining the o-rings so nothing leaks in. So the real answer is both cameras work fine but if you use either in salt water you have to be super careful.
