as I am in the market for an 5D MK II housing I consider Ikelite beneath others.
I had great results with Canons 17-40mm lens so far and consider it to be my WA choice.
When I read Ikelites port chart it states the #5503.51 BUT says also:
"Port is not long enough to accommodate accessory diopters or filters."
- Is a +2 Diopter needed to get acceptable corner sharpness?
- Is close up WA (Dr. Mustards TM) possible without a diopter?
- AFAIK the 17-40mmm has a rear filter holder, Magic Filter will be possible after all
- Is the Port #5503.51 a good choice or is the 8" Dome necessary?
I would love to see sample pictures of this setup on a full frame camera....
