In Topic: Panasonic GH-5 lens selection WWL1 or wide-angle

It might be an issue with manufacturing tolerances of either Panasonic or Nauticam. Here is a photo of the Olympus 60mm focus gear contacting the nose on my GH5. I've worn off some GH5 paint attempting to turn the gear.

Just a follow-up on the Olypus 60mm macro fitment issue in case this comes up for anybody else:

 

Nauticam sells/has sold two gear sets for the Olympus 60 mm Macro with the same part number. Either this or Nauticam revamped the part but retained the part number. The lip in front of the gear is changed just enough to effect fitment of the lens to the GH5. If you buy this manual focus gear for the GH5 make sure you request the thin-lipped version.

White balance looks great.

I'm axious to get my GH5 into cold water this weekend (conditions permitting).

The settings choices the GH5 are almost overwhelming relative to my Canon SLR so it's interesting to see what has worked for you, particularly given I dive in similar conditions (Monterey). I would not normally consider auto ISO as an option for example.

Also, I had not encountered the shutter angle option (thanks stphnmartin).

Ok. A friend have no issues with the 60 mm in in the standard flat port, but the Oly 7-14 zoom ring doesn't work for him.

There seems to be an issue with the zoom gear for the Olympus 7-14 mm as well.

 

It's also a problem with the Olympus 60mm macro focus gear on the GH5.

My dealer has contacted Nauticam.
