Just curious about the 60mm in the 12-50 port. Autofocus only I assume and would the Subsea flip adapter work with that to the new nauticam super macro lens? Thinking about getting a M1 system for my wife for Xmas. Sounds like Pan 8mm with 4.33 dome, 12-50 w/port and 60mm the best set up? If the 60 fits the 12-50 then just 12-50 port and small dome would be really great for travel.
Thanks for any info.
I am using the 12-50 & the 60mm in the 12-50 port with the M5. As Coroander stated, you can either auto or manual focus these lenses. The macro zoom to 43 mm for the 12-50 is particularly nice. I have the Nauticam flipholder for 70 mm diopters with an Inon +6.
Don't mean to be combative but the idea is to have options, maybe someone has a tray system they like or a style of handle they prefer. I agree that Nauticam has a nice system but you can customize it with other trays/handles to fit your needs. I personally like options.
I like the hand strap on the right side of my Nauti OM D5 rig. I use the handles as strobe mounts.
The Olympus 45mm F1.8 is an excellent lens but NOT a macro lens. I own the Panasonic 45 macro and the Olympus 60 macro. All things considered the 60 macro would be a better choice for you. It fits the 12-50 port, the 45 will not. Longer reach, focus limiting in the macro range and better suited to +5/10 close up lenses.
I use the Oly 60 mm in the 12-50 port with a +6 diopter (flip mounted). I do like the 12-50 a lot.
