Does anyone use this port for a canon 10-22?

I haven't personally, for rectilinear zooms one is really better served by a larger dome in order to maintain corner sharpness. But according to Subal, it is possible to shoot with this dome using the combination of a 33mm extension and +4 dioptre.

Hi Sterling,

I did see that on the Subal site - just wondering if anyone has any experience with it. It is half the price and would be better for travel. I will probably go with the Canon 10-22 or Tokina 10-17 and 8" dome.

Thanks,

Jim

I think that's a good choice - the 8 inch dome will definitely yield better results, especially with the 10-22. It's still pretty compact, all things considered.
