Hello, I m own a nauticam em 1mkii housing.
I have the zen 170 n85 i dome, and I would like to buy the 30mm extension and the zoom gear for the olympus 9-18 lens.
I would like to know if there are another brand compatible with nauticam, because the nauticam zoomgear and the 30mm extension are very expensive...

Thanks

Hi Jetor,

 

I have the D&D Zoomgear for the Zuiko 12-40mm (and Nauticam NA-EM5II housing) and it works perfect: https://www.unterwas...-zoom-gear.html

 

Same with D&D Focusgear for the Zuiko 60mm Makro...

 

I also have D&D Zoomgear for the Panasonic 7-14mm, but this gear fits very tough on the lens, so force is required to put it on, what I dont like - cannot recommend it at present (the owner of the company promised to 3D print a modified version after I return from diving vacation, so it will be improved by then (vacation will start this Saturday :rolleyes: ...))

I cannot compare to original gear from Nauticam, whether this fits better, as I never had it, but the two gears mentioned above fit perfect w/o any problem...

 

BTW, what happened to your flooded housing - do you know now, what was responsible (I am interested to know, since I also have Nauticam housing and want to avoid flooding)?

 

Wolfgang :)

If you know anyone with a 3D printer, you can have a gear printed. I'm working on having a Panasonic 7-14mm gear printed now. If it goes well, I'll try and post up the file.

Thanks Wolfgang! Finally it was the o ring of the 60mm port... They changed it and now everything it's ok...

Thingiverse publishes 3d printer codes.  I used their code to print my Subal gears, they work perfectly for a fraction of the cost.
