I need few opinions to help me make final decision on purchase.
I have Nikon D700 and Sea&Sea housing for it. Until now was shooting with Sigma 15mm in medium size glass dome (Optical Dome Port 7.2 inch).
For the upcoming trips I am about to start using Nikon 16-35 and I think I need bigger dome for it to manage corner sharpness. Therefore I have decided to get a new dome.
Option 1: Fisheye Dome Port 240, acrylic made, 10 inch - around 700USD
Option 2: Zen DP-230 Superdome, 10 inch - around 1900 USD
Price difference is around 1:3
What do I get/loose?
Option 1 Pros:
- 3 times cheaper
- more lightweight
Option 1 cons:
- easier to scratch
- not so good for split shots
Currently I am leaning toward Option 1.
What do you think and what would you advise me?
Note: I am not a pro and 100 dives per year is Mt. Everest to me :-(
