Mike,

I'm afraid the answer is "no". The camera bodies and control locations are quite different. It's a very expensive upgrade, especially because the Seacam stuff is now priced in Euros... <_<

Supposedly some of the other manufacturers (Aquatica, Sea & Sea?) are now making adapters that will allow you to use your Seacam ports with their housings, and they have Mark III housings, so that's an option you might want to look into...
