Hi I recently bought an Aquatica 3 housing for my Nikon F3. However I have run into a huge problem. No one I have talked to seems to have the proper lens port for this camera. I have a Nikon 20mm 2.8 AIS and I am looking for a Dome Port to go along with my Nikon F3. Does anyone know where I can buy this? I have searched all over the internet and no one seems to be selling it. Does anyone know someone with a Dome Port for this housing that they aren't using? I really need this port. Let me know guys, the port number is 18400 if this helps. Thanks in advance.

Calling Jean Bruneau at Aquatica might help, also, consider asking Helix in Chicago. Maybe Nat Geo has some leftovers too...

I already tried both Aquatica and Helix. Helix is actually where I got the housing body. Nobody seems to have any wide angle dome ports left.

I have a few F-3 gears and an extension ring for macro/tele converter if you are interested.
