Hi there, of anyone of you have used the sigma 17-70 in a S&S housing, I need some advice about the zoom gear number and the dome and the extension ring, thank very much for your help... Humberto

This lens is not supported on S&S official configuration.
Try Fun-In to see if they have a zoom ring for it.
I think the zoom ring 56350 might fit this lens, if you drop by a shop give it a try.
It works with the NX Fisheye Dome Port, you might want an ER40 or an SXER also, all depends on testing.

Good luck and post the results!

Next time I think you should search here Humberto...
Look here:

I tried the 17-70 in my DX-D80 and the optical Dome (+SX and 40 Extensions) - I like the Results maybe the next time I'll try a +2 Diopter for better edge sharpness.
Some first results on my Testpage...

Greetings
Tom
