Here are some low res (for Online viewing) of my trip to Ningaloo WA taken with OMD EM1 with Olympus 8mm f1.8 in Nauticam housing. No flash as you are not allowed to use them photographing the whale sharks.
Also some astrophotography pics as this lens has very low coma distortion.

These are examples shot with the Olympus 8mm F/1.8 Fisheye, E-M1 II, Nauticam NA-EM1II housing, Nauticam N85 140mm optical glass dome port and N85 extension 17. One close focus and one at about 18 inches.

Here's a couple shot through the Inon 170mm dome with my E-M1 and Oly housing.  I use the same dome for the 12-40 and 7-14 Pro lenses- just add a 2" extension ring and you're in business.  Remove it, and you can use the 8mm.  Corner sharpness is lousy in the first one because I was shooting at f2 for some reason.  I have others taken at a reasonable f-stop that had better corner performance.
