Looks good Jean. If the stock is available, I'm buying it now. Too bad, no Aquatica distributors here in Jakarta.


Proper etiquette mandates that manufacturers, distributors and dealers are not at liberty to discuss their inventory status on this forum. Sorry mate... but you can always PM us if you want to have more info concerning theses close up lenses

The images look good on the 50mm lens. Hopefilly, Tim will do a follow up when his 100mm lens arrives.

Hi Kirk,

Yes, I will follow up. There are a couple of great nudibranch spots here I've been wanting to try. But the nudis are normally small. This kit should help a lot. Very exciting.

OK, as I said, I will follow with a look at using this kit with a 100mm lens. The stars aligned and I went down to my friendly, neighborhood ocean and here's what I found:

Oddly, I didn't find any really tiny nudis, but my dive buddy found one and the CU Kit came in really handy for him. He came to show it to me but by the time we got back, it had moved away.

Also, I tried out the Tokina 100mm. Simply put, I like everything about it except the fact that it doesn't have internal focusing. Have a look:

Finally, here's a gallery of images shot with the 100 and 100 plus the +10 with the Aquatica Close-up kit. All of this info should give you an idea of how nicely this system works:

Let me know what you think. I find this whole kit really functional and easy to use.

Best,

Timbo
