For the price of the aqupazza, you're better off get the Nauticam as it has leak detector.
I'm not sold on the idea of the magnet, at least it's not mainstream and proven. There is no mention of how many lb pull is the magnet, so if one do a back flip entrance into the water, would the magnet hold up?
Lens holder on arm would be an issue and become expensive. The 67mm lens holder is already expensive, if you add the male portion of the magnet on the arm lens holder, the cost add up and how can you assure that it won't come off and lose your lens if it get knock off or the crew that handle your camera are not being careful?
Lastly, it will be a pain to stack macro lens. I personally have a +5 and +7 diopter, and I'm sure many divers have more than 1 diopter for macro photography. If you attach a magnet holder on each diopter, it drive cost up and when you try to stack them, you will in crease the space in between them and make them more challenge to use. Just something to consider.
nauticam for RX100MKII has a leak detector??
backflip entry with a camera in hand.. no...never...
u have to tell the crew what is you set up when u have expensive diving equipment.. and how you want it to be handled. but i tot you backroll with you camera anyway! why do you care how its handled kee kee.
well.. logic plays a part.. if u going to stack.. then u really have to be careful right... in the beginning. i am going to stack by screwing on the new lens on top of the other....
the magnet give you an option of an quick switch from maybe a +10 to an +5+
A wide angle lens with M67 thread for the Sony weights around 330 grams or 21 Ounces in water
I would not trust a magnet for something that is expensive
Maybe for the wide angle lens ... It can be a bit heavy...
