I would appreciate any recommendations based on experience for a dome port (Zen, Nauticam or S&S) useful for the Sigma 17-70 mm (macro) lens.

 

Thank you.

This lens works well in pretty much everything other than the small 4" dia domes used for fisheyes.  So if you have a mid-size to big dome chances are you don't need to buy anything else.  But if I were setting this up from scratch I'd use a 170mm optically coated glass dome w/ 5-6cm of extension (depending upon the 17-70 variant).

Ryan,

 

Thank you.  I need a new dome, so I will order a Zen 170 mm in the next couple of weeks.
