Looks kinda interesting for "general reef stuff", but can't find any underwater reviews or reports at all, and no housing manufacturer seems to list it... any idea why?

i am also considering this as a general purpose lens so any info would be useful. 

 

Pachku - the diamater is listed as 84mm  and the sigma 10-20mm lens is listed as 83.5mm so the zoom rigs should be the same. the length is only 1cm longer so port configurations should also match. i already have a 10-20mm zoom ring which is why i am looking at it.

I'm gonna try it, next summer. Can't find a reason why it should not work, picture quality looks good, zoom range seems quite useful. Got it working "in the dry" with the zoom ring of the 8-15mm.

Here's a link to some pics taken with this lens. I didn't have a zoom ring for it so I only used it at fixed 12 mm behind a Sea & Sea compact wide port (L) flat port. With a zoom ring it would be a nice general purpose lens.
