In Topic: Nauticam and the LX100II

I got my conversion kit too.  I wish they would have sent an instruction sheet to figure out how to install it (I think I will manage to figure it out).  I haven't decided yet on whether or not I am getting the LX100 II, or going to "something else", so I will just hang on for a bit.  I am leaving this weekend for a week of playing with sea lions underwater in Mexico, and I think I will be just fine with my original LX100

I just ordered the "Conversion Kit for the NA-LX100 housing to use the LX100 II camera." I haven't decided on whether I am upgrading to the LX100 II, staying with the original LX100, or going to "something else", but for $30 (cost of the kit), I thought it would be good option to have.  I'm not in a rush to make a decision.

I got an email from Nauticam that they are releasing conversion kit to allow the NAU-LX100 to work with the LX-100II, and posted about it in the photo gear forum.  It is a relatively minor part needed to convert the LX100 housing to an LX100II housing.

Update:  I got word this morning from Nauticam that they are releasing conversion kit to allow the NAU-LX100 to work with the LX-100II.  It is a small piece, which, from what I can tell from the drawing they sent, either adjusts the button to press one of the top function buttons on the camera, or it adjust the on-off switch.  Either way, it is a relatively minor part needed to convert the LX100 housing to an LX100II housing.

Since you are talking Sony E-mount (I used to use those), you might want to try full frame lenses e-mount lenses on the APS-C camera, if there are lens ports that permit that. 

Part of the reason I left Sony E-mount was the lack of decent APS-C e-mount lenses (Canon, Sony and Nikon all neglect their APS-C lens lineup because the full frame lenses are more lucrative.  They are also generally heavier/bigger).  Personally, I found it difficult to get enough depth-of-field when I was shooting full-frame, while still keeping noise to acceptable levels.  But that is just me, everyone has their own views.  Whatever you are most comfortable with is the right answer for you!
