In Topic: Advice/buying: Taking Panasonic GX7 underwater?

I was looking hard at the Nauticam NA-GX7 housing for that camera.  Smaller but as usual the Nauticam prices don't drop for older models.  Anyway that plus a port 36121. While the 14-42 may not need a dome port 36133, I would get one so that when you buy a shorter lens like the Pany 7-14 would work


In Topic: NEW Panasonic GX85 Announced

Am probably going to buy the GX85 in a new Nauticam housing.  This camera has all the feature of the GX8 Less the 20mp sensor.  I would put it between the GX7 and GX8 in size and specs.  It is about $500 less for camera and this camera comes with an internal flash so no extra there.  It would seem to be a natural fit to my Pany 8mm FE and came be setup behind the 4.33 inch dome port easily.  The stabilization and auto focus are also better than GX7.


In Topic: Which Olympus model to upgrade to...

I am in same situation, but without EPL7.  I would stick that in an Oly hsg and choose between several Oly lenses:

8 mm FE needs a non-Oly port. 12-40 EZ zoom with special gears.  Or 9-18 zoom.

 

The new housing is said to be smaller and lighter.  But also has a smaller diameter port, so check lens and port combos carefully.

 

Ikelite has a couple of housings for EPL7.  If above doesn't fit your needs?

 

and then there is Fantasea?~
