I'm thinking of getting the new compact macro port and 6" dome myself.
Nikon D200, Aquatica AD200

It's a really good question, though. With an AF-S 105 lens, then manual focus capability might be a real plus. I'll tell you about that in about a month.

Which Aquatica macro port is best for the new Nikkor 60mm? The old port is acrylic (18426) and allows manual focus but there is a new glass port (18428) which is autofocus only.

"There are three ports-
The standard Macro Plexi (no longer available)
"" "" "" Glass (manual focus and available) #18426
Macro Port AF only, no manual focus possible #18428
I would get the glass with manual focus so you can also use it later with the 105 macro."
I guess it depends on how useful/essental manual focus will be. I've managed to use a Sigma 105mm in autofocus mode with a D200 but at maximum focus it is very difficult but it I guess it might be even worse to try and manual focus. It's bad enough with a tripod on land!
