I haven't personally experienced the effect with my cameras other than at full sized view I can see the trees are a bit lacking of detail and have a similar effect with the D10 some times. I was just mentioning that some cameras might have poor internal software so that people might dig for serious reviews where someone has done various types of shots to test it out. I prefer to post-process myself, and have been very happy with Lightroom. I had version 3 for a year and a half, and 4 is out with a price that can't be resisted so I upgraded. It now lets you paint areas to apply sharpening and noise reduction (or greater amounts than you want to apply to the entire photo) as well as the gradient tool. Each is great at cleaning up the artifacts in the sky and clouds without ruining the rest of the shot. I will mention that the D10 does not provide TIFF let alone RAW, so you have to work with a lossy format from the start. But for a waterproof cam I'm happy with it. It's quick to change modes too. The OSD has large images so easy to read, and it has a very bright LCD for sunny days. I'm not recommending it, but I don't think anyone would be unhappy with it. I've not used any other waterproof camera other than for video (VIO POV HD). I don't take stills with that but I'll export interesting frames. Not nearly as good as a camera but at 30fps you can grab a lot of action to sift through, and at times you wouldn't be taking photos with any camera because you are very busy with conditions or trying to keep pace with your subject.
