I got these from Aquatica today - I should have my housing in a few days (they ship tomorow - woohoo!) and I'll post a review then if I haven't been beaten to the punch. It incorporates many of the features of the D2X housing, including the new camera mount.

I received these too - I'm very impressed. I would like to see a photo of the back of the housing though...:-)

Looks very nice. I think this new generation of Aquaticas (D2X onwards) are looking very nice indeed.

It looks like a 20D housing to me. There is no grips in these photos, is it included?
Thoese grips of 20D was look like made of plastics, would this housing use the same material for the grips?

No, the grips are not included. Housing pictured sells for $9.99 and the grips are sold separately for $1,549...:-)

Just joking of course.

I'm guessing that the handles will be the same as used for the 20D. The housing looks very similar.

For weight friendliness I mush prefer the handles the way they are on the 20D. Metal handles would add some weight for travel and carry.

I'm waiting for the quote from my local dealer, 10 days already!

I just wondering, why Aquatica can start shipping housing, but can't provide any official info/picture in its website.
