(By choice that is...)

 

If yes, in which cases do you choose to do that?

Yes. Typically that would be a close up subject that is not small enough to require a macro and not large enough to require a WA lens and still be able to move in fairly close. For example, an anemone or star fish portrait. Additionally, a subject that you can't get close to without it swimming off so if you used a WA lens the subject would be too small. Think reef fish.

Fish portraits do not require a lens usually

Yup. Although the wetlenses are on most of the time due to my subjects being small. If im shooting fish portraits, I check if I can pull it off with the diopters. But if the composition doesnt work, I remove the diopters (usually subjects that are more than a couple of inches long)

Big pelagic at low depth best opportunity to get close shooting around 18mm equivalent
