It is a well reviewed wet lens but here is one more.  We took a "real" vacation to Cozumel; two easy drift dives in the morning and then lunch by the pool with margaritas!  First drink last dive...no worries!

 

As I have documented years ago I dropped my DSLR gear for the Sony RX100 line in Nauticam housings.  I love to shoot wide angle, anyone can shoot macro :laugh:

 

I found it had pretty good range, see below.  I did find I needed to be around f.8 or the shots needed a fair amount of sharpening.  I did not take it off all week as Coz is mainly drift diving.   Great trip but really need to get back to Indonesia.

Nice shots, post more if you can!!  I have to say I love this little rig with the WWL-1, it's a very capable compact system.

Ok a couple of more.

 

Providing the seahorse shot just to give an idea of how "small" it will shoot.  I did buy the Nauticam float collar, but never used it.  With a few Stix floats on the arms really easy to shoot one handed.

Very nice shots! Cozumel is so colorful. Those wide-angle conversion lenses are so versatile, with image quality to make them a great choice.
