D60 housing WILL work with the 10D!!!!

Also, I tried the sigma 15-35 3.5 lens (in doors)even in almost complete darkness focusing was very fast. This is one hell of a camera for $1500!

I see from photos of the two housings that the buttons on the top of the camera (that control AF, Drive, etc.) have been moved as well. That means you can't access those, either, right?
There is a good animated gif of the 10d and D60 in dpreview.com's previes of the 10d. It shows that most of the buttons on the left-hand side of the camera back are roughly in the same place (the push buttons will not hit them in the center, though). The trash button has been moved, along with all the buttons on the top-right. The mode dial has been raised slightly and moved just a bit. Hopefully, chris will come back with a full report of what he had to do to get the controls in the UK Germany housing to work with the 10d.
Maybe my housing will sell after all!
Has anyone shoved one into the Sea & Sea housing yet? I saw a 10d the other day -- and my housing was sitting right there, empty -- but I neglected to try it.

Please understand the focus point button is still accessible it's just the focus type that is not.
The quick control button, set button, shutter and main dial are all accessible in this housing. The LCD monitor and eyecup are perfectly aligned . (LCD on the 10D is much brighter)
The back buttons
Direction -New on the 10D I see no value for underwater purposes
Erase -Not accessible
Info -almost accessible (might be able to bend the bar a little) Why bother I don't need this - Lets use the Kiss method.
Only down side I see is below,
The Main button AKA Menu button does not line up -Would be nice but not required.. As soon as my child goes to bed tonight I am going to figure out a way to align it up.

I got my 10D yesterday and immediately tried it in my UK-G housing. However, I can not get the thing to seal properly -- it's *almost* there but not quite, and I don't want to force it. Did you have this problem? Is my housing just a little too snug or something? Agh!
Please hilfe! (that's german for 'help' )

Yesterday night was a bit cloudy at my place, took some pictures though, small moon, no teleconverter lens... :-(

Since yours worked I tried mine again, and with a bit of shoving got it to fit. It seems these are not all identically sized; it is VERY snug! The control that sets mode (Av/Tv etc) on the left is jammed right up against the camera, too tightly for my liking. I'll tweak with it and see if I can't get it to fit more easily, it's pretty hard to get the case to seal.
Also, the * button does not line up with the * button on the camera in my case. Yargh! I absolutely need that as I use it for focus (which, as a side effect, makes the Canon E-TTL work better). Trouble is it's hard to see what's going on once you seal the thing up -- not sure how to solve that particular problem.
Other than that the controls seem to line up well, shutter and set button etc. all work. I'd really like to be able to change ISO on the fin, I have used that from time to time when conditions were darker than expected at depth.

You wanted some examples of the 10D, I shot some surface Macro that I thought worked out.
Lens 100.0 - 400.0 mm Focal Length 120.0 mm Image
Lens 100.0 - 400.0 mm Focal Length 190.0
Let me know what you think, I know the DOF is bad but it was handheld at F4.5.
