Ikelite or Fantasea ?

I recently purchased a Nikon Coolpix P5100. I have long had an interest in underwater photography. I do not have the free time. To justify an SLR and the the expense of housing, flashes,etc. A point and shoot goes together with my style of diving.

I am torn between the Ikelite and Fantasea housing for the Coolpix. Ikelite is more expensive, but does the quality justify the increase of price. Most of my diving is shallow scuba and free diving to 60 ft. at high altitude.

The money I save on the Fantasea. Would go to a bigger underwater strobe. Which is my next purchase. Recommendations are much appreciated.
