Zen Underwater Announces Support for the Olympus PT-EP08 Housing (OM-D EM-5 Camera).

Fort Lauderdale, FL., October 11, 2012 - Zen Underwater proudly announces support options for the Olympus PT-EP-08 underwater housing for the popular Olympus OM-D EM-5 interchangeable lens camera. A new dome port and port adapter are now available allowing accessory ports to be used that support key lenses for underwater photographers.

In a radical departure from prior Olympus M4/3 camera housings, Olympus changed the port mount for the PT-EP08 housing, implementing a rotating bayonet style latch, and eliminating the upgrade path for owners of prior PT-series housings fitted with Zen Underwater ports.

In order to provide customers an upgrade path from older PT-series housings and to protect their investment in Zen ports, Zen Underwater is now offering the PA-EP08-EP Adapter to allow use of the following ports with the PT-EP08 housing:

The PA-EP08-EP Adapter will be available October 15, 2012. Retail price $100USD.

In addition, Zen Underwater is now offering the DP-100-EP08 Dome Port, a 100mm optically coated glass dome port for the Panasonic Lumix G Fisheye 8mm f/3.5 lens, designed specifically for the PT-EP08 housing.

Zen Underwater pioneered the concept of small 100mm (4in.), high quality optical glass dome ports for fisheye lenses and the DP-100-EP08 continues that tradition offering unsurpassed optical quality for the Panasonic 8mm Fisheye lens. These high quality glass dome are extremely resistant to flare, and incredibly durable.

The DP-100-EP08 will be available October 15, 2012. Retail Price: $799USD.
