Hey gang.....I finally have my 17-35 Nikkor.....putting the Sea and Sea zoom gear on, I noticed that the teeth on the housing do not mesh with the gear on the lens. We pushed it on as far as it would go, still, the zoom knob would not engage. As frustration mounted....we tried a Subal gear for grins.....Presto! It took a heat gun to expand it enough to fit on, but the gear alignment is correct now and that is one less headache solved before our trip next week. As we all have experienced at one time or another, or in the future....modifications are needed and the bottom line is to "Git 'er Done" Looking forward to getting in the water with it now....get some time with it before the trip....

Hi John,

Thanks for the tip! Also note that the Aquatica zoom gear for the 70-180 also work with the Titan zoom knob/gear.

Cheers
