Thanks. I checked out all the info on the Nexus at usanexus.com. I will definitely send an email...thanks for the info. I would buy the Subal but the $600 price difference beteween the Subal and the Nexus doesn't seem justified. Can't tell what the Subal has that makes it so much more expensive.

Realistically I think maybe they assume the D100 will only be around for a limited period and for a limited amount of users - This added to the fact they are Austrian.
Best buy as far as I can see the L&M jobby but Nexus are consistantly good value - If there can be such a thing in UW photographic equipment.

Another thing you should consider is the housing optics: As the D100 has only an am' finder you require a housing with good compensatory optical kit. According to form the S & S one is far from satisfactory presently.

I've been in line since Dema and the odds are questionable for my trip at the end of February.
I agree the L&M is awfully sexy, but after being burned on two L&M products I'm reluctant to put any trust in their electronics. I'd really like to hear of anyone getting reliable service out of the ROC controllers since that's what scares me off the L&M D100 housing. Too bad since machine work looks so good.

D100,it looks really nice.I also think there pricing is much lower than the
other aluminum housings,and also there ports are less expensive.Speak with Blake,I am sure he will be able to help you out.
