Spent a week on the Nai'a and another 8 days at Qamea Resort near Taveuni.

 

Shot the Nikon D850 in a Nauticam housing. I used the Sigma 15mm FE, Nikon 17-35 behind a Zen 170mm dome, as well as the Nikon 105mm VR macro.

 

I'm still working on a TR, will post when it's available. But here's a few shots to whet your appetite.

Jack,

 

Nicely done. Very nice images, indeed!

 

Any massive UW difference over D800 or D810 in your opinion?

Thanks, gang.

 

I think the D850 is a lot faster and the AF better. It certainly has higher resolution. Which I think is pushing the envelope of what the Sigma is capable of. I mostly shot at f/9 or f/11 or so and I found I had small DOF issues even then.

 

Here's another:
