I am still futzing along with my d70, and with my current lens set won't consider an AFS-only camera (or one without an LCD panel on top or lacking two command dials--just too different from a prosumer camera -- but that's another issue). That said, Sigma's 10-20 is fairly good and cheap and AFS-compatible, so all that's really missing is a short macro, for now.

It will be interesting to see how well this camera is supported by the various manufacturers.

Simple housing , 1 bulkhead , simple flat port. My 2 cents.......


We are working on a new smaller streamlined line of Aquatica housing with the intention of making it clearly the least expensive of the aluminium housing, it will be a compact design, simple of operation and a new line of lighter and smaller ports for the light minded traveler will be introduced, Obviously all ports will be using our standard bayonet and will be interchangeable with the current ones also all effort will be made to accept available TTL adapter, including supplying the housing with the Ikelite bulkhead,

Its a line oriented to introduce the new DSLR owner to U/W photography as well as providing more advanced user with a smaller easier to carry packcage. These housings will fit nicely in our current line up, providing economical solution (both for the housing as much as for the housed camera) without sacrifice to optical quality or handling. Wish I could tell you more right now ;) DEMA is our target date.

Best to all.

Any opinion about Ikelite housing?

AF lens can be used as well, e.g. AF 10.5mm
