NOTE: The Aquatica +10 diopter lens is a 2 element achromat (as far as I can tell - but correct me if I'm wrong, Jean), while the SubSee +10 is a 4 element achromatic system. Spreading the +10 dioptric strength over more elements allows significantly less edge distortion to be present.

Love my SubSee magnifiers! Took a little to get the right technique down pat but now I've got the hang I'm

slowly building a collection of shots I've been after for some time. Loving the detail!

I've got a fl diopter that works with any lens with a 67 mm thread so you should be use the Aquatica lens. If I read the review of the Aquatica lens correctly it has an air element like the Subsee. I think it would have to have more than 2 optical elements.

Here is a pic of the Aquatica +5 and the Subsee +10. The Aquatica +10 is the same size as the +5. The phyiscal size and weight og the Aquatica +10 is smaller than the Subsee.  The Aquatica wet lenses come with 67mm thread and a o-ring style connection with the Aquatica lens holder.  I personally Don't like the Aquatica wetlens holder and prefer to screw my wetlenses into a holder with 67mm thread as it feels more secure. 

 

My girlfriend ended up taking my Aquatica +10 as she prefers it to her Subsee leaving me the subsee with no way of using it....................lol

 

I cant not tell you the quality between the two as I rarely shoot macro and I also cant mount the subsee with my Aquatica lens holder.
