I've been following this forum for a while, and have really appreciated the wealth of knowledge everyone has.
I'm currently researching underwater camera systems (starting from scratch) for both professional and personal purposes (the conservation of salmonids and other native fish in the Pacific Northwest). I've been following the camera releases for a while, and think I've settled on Sony mirrorless as the best camera brand, as well as a Nauticam housing. I've been waiting patiently for the next release of the Sony A7SIII.
I'm curious what people recommend for wide angle, zoom, and macro, and any other favorites people have. I have some consideration for size, so ideally, I'd like to stay away from 10'' domes. Any other port/ focus considerations would also be appreciated.
What I've looked at so far is the Sony 16-35 2.8 GM, the 90mm 2.8 macro, and the 28mm F2 (perhaps with a wide angle conversion). I know the N100 flat port 32 works with the FE 28mm, but what other two ports would people recommend?
Most of the use will be in stream environments, and I will be doing a lot of under/over shots. I will need to keep lenses as bright as possible due to limited light, and fast moving subjects. Also, please keep in mind that I will be hiking equipment (many miles) into wilderness areas, and traveling quite a bit-- so ideally the more scenarios the gear can cover, the better.
Thanks in advance for any and all advice.
