Loftus, i was able to work with Aquatica. For me the results were ok. At 14mm and f8 there is no unshapness. For me that is fine. You can read my review at divephotoguide. I will use this camera with my model work and I won't work under f8 and most of the time I would not use the corners of a frame frequently. So if I work under f8 it won't be a problem.
I think Ron Offermans worked with this rig while diving in the Dutch waters. Maybe he can show some of his results here....
Ryan: great that you will take the efford to test all in the swimmingpool. Ofcourse it is no problem to wait!
Thanks Karin; I did see your pool stuff, very nice.
I think from what we've seen so far the 14-24 works well at 8-11 with most dome setups; at least in real world shooting. As far as objective pool tests go, Steve Frink showed good results with a Seacam setup I think to 5.6, but then I think the testing setup was a little arbitrary.
As you mention turning up the ISO is no longer a no no with the new cameras, and I consider ISO adjustment now to be a new third exposure control that I can freely adjust up to about 1600.
