The SONY NEX-5 is an interesting new mirrorless camera (like the micro-four thirds format) with an APS-C sized sensor - theortically delivering image quality similar to a Nikon or Canon dSLR.

Aquatica and Nauticam have announced housings - you can see the Aquatica housing here, and the here's the Nauticam housings.

The NEX housing from Nauticam also allow you to use your old Nikonos lenses with an adapter. While the crop sensor won't get you the same FOV as you got with film, the Nikonos 15 is still one of the best ever underwater lenses.
