I was curious whether anyone has had the opportunity to try out the FIX/G10 fisheye dome port? If so, what do you think? Are the corners reasonably sharp?

Thanks.

Hey onewolf,
Just read in another post you ordered the Fisheye G10 setup with the new dome port. Can you please let me know how it goes when it arrives?
I have the G10/Fisheye setup with the Fisheye W/A 15 port but would like to get the dome if it reduces blurry edges more. Other than that I'm real happy with the kit so I think you'll have a blast with it.
Cheers!
Tim.

Can you share some examples of how your setup is working out? I am considering the Fisheye setup, like yours, with my Z-240's. Would love to see some examples of the success/soft corners to aid the consideration.

I dived this setup a bit a couple of weeks ago when I was in Cayman for Divetech's grand opening party for their new Lighthouse Point location. The setup (g10, fix dome, 2x s-2000) is a blast to use. Soft corners do pop up from time to time, but they can be mitigated by bumping the zoom out just a bit.
