Hi

 

I'm looking for experiences from others who have used the UCL-67 with a housed DSLR...

 

I have 60mm and 85mm Nikon lenses with an old D90.  I spent a little time playing with both lenses plus the UCL-67 on my kitchen table and I appear to get a much greater magnification of the subject when using the 85mm lens.  The magnification when used with my 60mm lens is little better than my old Subsee +5 diopter!

 

I've not done as much comparative testing in water but it's starting to feel like the UCL-67 on my 60mm is not that good.  :(

 

BTW:  I'm shooting mainly in the UK so I don't want a very big working distance between lens and subject; which is why I don't own a 105.

 

The UCL-67 just doesn't appear to be the +15 diopter it is advertised to be.

 

wdyt?

You need to run tests in water to really see the benefits if I recall correctly the last generation Inon lenses do not work properly on land and focal length is only provided in water.
Btw what are you planning to shoot in UK with the UCL67?

Thanks I'll try some more in water tests.. I'm shooting nudibranch heads, skeleton shrimp and amphipods right now.
