I picked up the Nauticam SMC-1 before a recent dive trip to Anilao. It definitely takes getting used to, but once you've got it dialed in, you can do some amazing things with it. 


Pros are that it's sharp, has good color, minimal distortion, and nice bokeh. Cons are that it's heavy, and I noticed some vignetting occasionally. I used the flip diopter holder, which was also helpful for when you want to take pictures of slightly larger stuff.

Thanks Jonm, great shots. Indeed noticed that its a fair bit heavier than some of the other ones that are recommended to me, like the inon ucl-67.
I previously had a cmc (with a 60mm oly lens) which worked great, so dont expect less of the smc.

Thanks !
