I bought this custom-made Ikelite 4” minidome for the Tokina 10-17mm lens with a 1.4x teleconverter from the well-known Canadian bird photographer Scott Leslie via Wetpixel. The mini-dome itself was made by EZ Tops, a company specializing in custom acrylic domes in eastern Canada. Scott had an old Ikelite flat port cut by a local glass company to the correct exit pupil length for the 10-17mm (58.2mm according to a website on optics he found online).The glass company bonded the dome to the old port cylinder. Scott has given up underwater photography to concentrate on his main interest and had never had ime to use the minidome. I rarely use my Tokina 10-17mm and have only used the minidome a couple of times so I have decided to sell it. I am asking 60 US dollars for it. Postage by registered letter post would be 21 US dollars if the total weight including packaging materials was under 500 grammes, 32 dollars if it was over 500 grammes but less than 1 kg. I haven't tried packing it yet.
Olympus E-MP1, 14-42mm and Micro 60mm lenses, Olympus PT-EP06 housing with standard port, dual Sea & Sea YS-D1 strobes, La Luz Optics L-800 and Light-For-Me 3XML video lights.
