Witness the power of an armed and fully operational 70-180...

"It looks like a small moon!"

"That's no moon."

I just got my 70-180 yesterday... It is an incredible lens.

I take it that is your Nexus D100 with the 70-180 Multiport?

Yes it is. I did some shots for Eric to integrate with the other D100 housing photos, but he got busy diving (how inconsiderate).
If you want to see the photos and some rough commentary, they are here. Inon 220's too.

Had to have my tripod mount removed and got it back today.

Well Dayum Craig! It's a beautiful thing!

Lots of good photos and a great comparison there... I can't wait to read your comments.

THAT'S OBSENE!

I've seen small countries taken over with less hardware than that!!!


Seriously though, that's a beautifully engineered housing.

I think it has a slimming effect, don't you?

I'm leaving in a week for Sipidan and won't be doing video, so I should get lots of time with it. Lots of macro combinations to try out.

The 24-85 f/2.8 macro fits in the multiport fine. All I need are zoom and focus rings.
I love it when a plan comes together.

Staying at SWV, so we'll have mostly Mabul dives. Their shore dive is great macro practice.
