Hi all,

I want to buy this lens and house it having seen the great results on here from it.

Has anyone arrived at the definitive zoom gear and port for this lens in Sea & sea housings ?

Reading previous postings there seems to be some conflicting views.


Sea & Sea D200 Housing - 60mm,105mm, 10.5mm, 12-24mm (All Nikon) Sigma 17-70mm and Tokina 10-17mm lenses and a bunch of Ports.
Lighting: 2 x Ikelite DS-125, 2 x Manual controller

I am using the (athena) glass dome with the SX extension, and it works great, sharp corners and no vinjetting.

The fokus grar for the 60mm macro lens fits with only minor modifications (se separate tread)

I also know that zuzo (uwdigitalcamera) in japan have made a custom gear for the 10-17

I got one from Divervision

It came quite quickly to NYC, no problems with customs or such. I tested it on the camera/housing today and it looks like it works just fine in the 8 inch domeport with no extension rings! :D

Can't wait to try it out next week in Lembeh :D

For Sea & Sea I found the Zoom Gear Set 56350 fitted perfectly. I use the SX extension ring 50261 with either the Optical Glass dome port 30104 (not imported to the UK by SEA & SEA Ltd) or the large acrylic dome port 56401. Results are excellent.

I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?
