I'm considering changing systems, does anyone have any underwater experience or reviews of the A9?  Is Nauticam the only housing manufacturer with a Nikonos adapter?  I mostly shoot macro and cfwa, what lenses would be recommended for those applications?

Hello Bryce


I'm in the process of switching over to the Sony a9. Switching over from a Canon 5D MK III system in Sea&Sea housings. I'll be shooting the camera topside for the first time within the next week. For macro, I'll be using the Sony FE f/2.8 90mm macro lens.

SEACAM has the ability to re-manufacture some Nikonos lenses, but as far as I know Nauticam is the only one with a Nikonos lens adapter and an a9 housing.


The Nikonos 15mmFE and the Sony 90mm Macro should do well for you.
