8-16 MM Sigma

Are there photographers who use the 8-16 mm Sigma underwater and can you show me some
photos taken with that lens and tell me what kind of dome you use?

I'm looking forward to shooting wrecks with it and retaining some straight lines in the images. Also, when I'm shooting w/a with CJ we can swap around the rectilinear (8-16mm) with the fisheye (10-17mm) glass and get different perspectives of the same subjects. It just adds a little more interest but I wouldn't be without my Tokina...

I use the 8-16 with the Seacam Superdome. I need f11 to get acceptable corners. I also tried the Seacam 6" dome but couldn't get better results. I didn't have exactly the right extension, but I don't think that was the issue. I like the rectilinear look better than the 10-17 with many subjects. If anyone has managed great corners at f5.6 with this lens, I'd love to hear what dome and extension.
Hi, here are some reviews of the lens:
Here's one review in combination with Zen 230mm dome and 60 mm extension, should give acceptable results from 7.1 though personally I wouldn't go below 8 if I don't have to. I'm going to buy the lens for the d7000 in a Subal housing with a 230mm dome that I already have. Very nice, coated inside and outside (industries first):
