Topics I've Started

Olympus TG-5, PT-058, KRL-02 and Sealife Tray

24 June 2018 - 04:38 PM

Selling my TG-5 setup as Im upgrading to an OM system! 😁

TG-5 and PT-058 housing both 6 months old and like new condition. Comes with all original accessories including warranty card. Camera was only used inside housing so the screen and body are in great shape. Also includes 2 extra Wasabi batteries and extra charger.

Kraken KRL-02 wet wide lens also 6 months old. Great wide angle lens and really adds to the TG-5s abilities. Comes with original case and a Bluewater neoprene cover. There are a few scratches on the glass but nothing deep enough to show up in photos.

Sealife double tray with arms and ball joint adapters. About a year old. Great shape and all release buttons work well. The ball joint adapters have typical wear marks from carrying handle shackles.

This is a really great rig for the beginner to intermediate photographer. I really learned a lot with this setup and gave me the confidence to move up to mirrorless.

$1000 USD buyer pays shipping and PP fees. Would be willing to split up but Id prefer to sell the camera and housing together.

Oly OM system starting from scratch

Hi!

Been reading a lot of good recommendations for folks getting the most versatility out of their kits, but Im basically starting from scratch and looking for lens/port recommendations for my EM5 MkII with Nauticam housing. The only lens Ive got is a 14-42 EZ that I got on the cheap just for topside shooting. I just got the Nauticam housing but no ports or gears. Im upgrading from the TG-5 so this is my first mirrorless rig.

So, if you were starting over which lenses and ports would you go with to give you the most flexibility without breaking the bank?

The Oly 8mm and 60mm come highly recommended. As does the 12-40 for topside. Some like the Oly 30 as well and if I got the macro 45 port I think I could use the same port for both the 30 and 60 with an extension, but is that even worth it?

I know its kinda a broad question but I appreciate any advice!
