I arranged it all via their email. It ended up costing me around 30 euros with shipping. I had never thought about taking fluro videos but now that u mention it I might pick up the appropriate filter for that too!

Forgot to say thanks!
Cannot wait to test these...though have to wait till May for some dives :S
Thanks for responding! Ya, I'm really just looking for a dome port for the lens I have right now. I know many people like to use the 7-14 and that will likely be my next purchase if I continue with this, but I'm starting with just what I have first so I'm really still just looking for that 4.33" dome.
UPDATE: Found Housing! Now looking for: port for 8mm fisheye.
QUESTION: I also have the kit 14-42 lens that came with the GH2. Is there any port that fits both the 8mm fisheye and the 14-42? The 3.5" port perhaps? I've been reading old threads online to try to figure this out, but there's a lot of information. Thanks, any advice appreciated!
Congrats! GH2 is a really great camera underwater, using it myself
As for your question - I don't think you will be able to fit both lenses. Just tried to fit 14-42 II (note it is much smaller than the original 14-42) into 4.33" port (dedicated for 8mm - Nauticam 36132) and it barely fits, pretty much pushing against the glass. No way you could use zoom. You could fit 8mm into the original 14-42 port (Flat port 72 - Nauticam 36121) but it will not really work...as its super wide angle will get you mostly port walls on the pic :S
Is there any reason you want 8mm ? If I might suggest perhaps go with a 6" port (Nauticam 36133) - this way you can fit there two lenses Panasonic 7-14 wide angle and Panasonic 12-35 wide-standard. Both are excellent lenses...since I've got the 12-35 it's my absolute favourite for normal and night dives as it is very versatile. Note that Panasonic might release what can be a potential replacement for this one....12-60 f2.8 sometime in 2017 but dunno..not much info yet apart from some GH5 shots with it mounted. Same for the next wide angle 8-18...but then that will (and have already!) bring the original prices down
well after shooting with GH2 for almost two years now, though rather as a hobby than pro, I do like Panasonic 7-14....works well, its quite flexible, even though its wide angle, got beautiful nudi shots in Gibraltar this month
-Price wise it actually went down lately, and can be bought for like £550 new...ebay probably around 400...think Olympus is like £1000 new...
-Another thing (very important for me!) - Panasonic 7-14 uses Nauticam 6" wide angle port, which also fits Panasonic 12-35, lately my favourite lens of choice...so you have two in one And of course one can fit the lens from the front or take the camera with the lens attached through the back. Again price wise 6" port - ~£400, 180mm port needed for Olympus, around £800...
Also the fact that Panasonic 7-14 port is smaller and can accommodate another lens is really appreciated when travelling...something tells me that 180mm glass port needed for Olympus will not only be bigger but also heavier.
To be clear, have not used Olympus 7-14...but then its your choice, is the f2.8 worth an extra grand or so? Me thinks better get Panasonic and get yourself another lens/lens+port combo for the same price as single Olympus setup....well unless wide angle is really really really important to you
Don't forget that Panasonic is working on 7-14 successor....which might be released sometime in 2017 along with GH5
He is a new member who is here since less than a week and tries to sell equipment to several members.
He only sends emails and never uses the forum chat. Furthermore, he tells lies why he can't do video chat to show the item.
Besides this, he tells different stories to different potential buyers. Sometimes he is located in New York, sometimes in California. Sometimes he got 5 housings from his company which he wants to sell, sometimes he has a newborn baby which is why he needs to sell all his equipment.
Fell free to contact me if you need more details.
I am looking for a Nauticam RX100 M3 housing - guy claims he has 5, brand new ones (yeah right), when I check him out it turns out his page was visited by every member with WTB topic (guess conveniently he has all teh parts people been looking for weeks).
Well, decided to message around and surprise, surprise, he has been in contact with other people too (hi "world.explorer" )
Got pictures from him on email and frankly never seen a housing so pristine...seemed like straight from the factory, not a speck of dust. But I guess that explains why in the corner of the pic, I could see a part of Nauticam logo, that looked like being a booth stand. Photo was most likely from some dive expo.
When asked for a picture with my nickname and today's date, to confirm he is indeed holding the housing in his hands, he refuses telling some wierd story like he send it once with his email address and then the deal didn't go through but the pic was used in some fraud. Asked again, stating that all I need is my nickname and the date, he refuses. He then proceeds offering me a pickup, even though I've stated early I am UK based (beam me up, Scotty ) , when pointed out he starts telling he has made a mistake because he has so many people interested in his housings...
Then claims PayPal holds all funds for 21 days like Escrow - while Paypal does have 21 days hold on some payments, its not an Escrow service.
Also, his english (though then again, I am not a native english speaker native myself ) , seems a bit odd..scammer english i would say
He goes by "Steve Choo" name, and uses the following email address:
Perhaps its all a pure coincidence (in which case I will happily take my words back) but frankly my monies are on the guy trying to run some kind of a scam here.
