Hey folks

 

I'm looking into whether I can get made a Subal zoom ring (to use with Type 4 ports) for a Nikkor 8-15mm lens and the Kenko 1.4TC.  Although Subal has a zoom ring for the Nikkor 8-15, they do not currently have a zoom ring for the 8-15 + Kenko 1.4TC.

However if enough people are interested......

 

If this would be of interest to you, could you let me know? I understand price would be broadly the same as the current Subal zoom rings although maybe slightly more given the need for extended length.

 

Thanks!

TimG, for me to use the 8-15 with a Kenko 1.4TC in my Nauticam NA-D500 housing I ended up using a Nauticam focus gears for the Canon EF 100mm f2.8L macro lens (model C100IS-F) which after a little bit of modification has been working quite well. Perhaps try the same focus gear in Subal version to achieve the same thing.
