In Topic: 20D & Aquatica samples?

I use it and here are the photos http://www.digitaldiver.biz

I also have the 8ich dome and to compare, well it's the same size as the subal 8 inch dome but the dome shade is massive!

Mike tried to have a look at your site to see what you have but you have so many dead links I gave up.

I took a few with my Canon 20D and find the angel of the subject to the sun makes a big difference in the way the photo turns out, i.e. looking straight up into the sun, like this shot, I wanted to give it a dusk feel but as you can see by the sun it was full daylight (about 11.00AM) Also I feel that the surface conditions also make a difference, this was a day without a ripple, we don't get to many like this (except when Alex is here :D )

The this was a day or so later and the surface was not so flat and the angel was far more to the side, a little to hot around the diver:

And lastly another flat day, but this time finding the sun around the boat, gives it a strange un-earthly feel.

One thing for sure sunbursts do make a cool photo.

In Topic: Subal, 20-D, 100 macro - manual focus?

I don't know about Subal, but I own an Aquatica A20 for the 20D and can say that you will not want to manual focus anyway, you'll be so close that manual will be very difficult, personally I can manual focus but never have and I've used it over 50 times. So don't let that put you off for this lense.

I have the Canon 17-85MM and it's a great lense. Very good in low light conditions, wide enough to get the bigger stuff and small enough for the smaller things. You're suppposed to use it behind the dome port but I use the flat, you have to back if off it's widest a mil or 2 but others wise it's great. I use the flat because it's smaller, the 8" dome is huge with the dome shade on.
