In Topic: Lens Recommendation for D850?

Yesterday, 05:53 PM

I plan to use: Nikon, 105, 60/2.8D, 20/2.8D (maybe), 16-35/4, and Sigma 15FE with the macro port, zen 170, and a big dome (tbd)...unless i decide to try the WACP - the size primarily, and somewhat the cost, are the blockers for me on the WACP, though.

I have made prints 20x40 (iirc) taken with a D800 and D810 with the Sigma 15 + Kenko 1.4x which I think look quite good, and more importantly were well received by their new owners.


If helpful: Nauticam housing, 20mm extension, zen 170mm dome.

I also use the 45-degree for both. Takes a bit of practice for macro, easy for WA.

In Topic: D500 vs D850?

I guess i have decided to house my D850. I am not excited at all on the WACP due to price or size, and not thrilled about a 230mm dome either. I will likely end up using my Sigma 15mm FE and Zen 170mm dome for most wide angle stuff and the 16-35/4 and 8.5" dome with some crop planned to clean up the corners, or just shoot it in DX mode...I generally don't like cropping, but the D850 file size will leave plenty of room for doing it. 


Anyway, I fear I will end up buying the WACP anyway, but I realllly don't want to.


All this stuff sometimes makes me wonder why I didn't just keep shooting the RX100 :)

I feel like if you somehow made me choose between a the D500 with a Nauticam housing vs a D850 with the Ikelite housing I would pick the D500 because of the housing alone. I would basically ignore everything else.
