For Sale


Nikkor 70-180mm/f4.5-5.6 with Subal Port


The only and classic macro zoom lens from Nikon, out of production nowadays. A very convenient macro lens for reproduction up to 1: 0.7x. AF and/or MF. Comes with a Nikon close-up lens type 5, which gives reproduction up till 1:1.

Lens is equipped with zoom gear, manual focus gear and auto-to-manual switching gear.


Dedicated Subal port for this lens (out of production now). For port type 4 or 3 (currently type for but also for type 3 when mounted port adapter will be removed). Port for auto or manual focus switching underwater is possible.


Both lens and port are in mint condition, used only few times since I am more a wide angle shooter. Used a couple of times in Lembeh Straits.


Asking for USD 1'500 (plus shipping cost). Payment cash, bank-wire or Paypal possible.


Shipping from Switzerland, worldwide shipping possible.

Subal TTL V3

17 January 2018 - 04:45 AM

There is a new TTL V3 board out for Nikon, see this:




Also 2 new ones for Canon.


I am still waiting for my Subtronics, they are not on the list of working uw flash systems....But, in manual mode it is possible to change power level on the camera menu system. I was even told by Subal (under Version 2 already) that they can build a switch into one of the free housing plugs (M14 threaded holes; I have 4 of them: 2 for the flash bulks and 2 are free) to change the power level by turning the switch, thus keeping the hands on the housing, which is interesting IMO. Anybody has experience / seen this?



Subal insolvent

01 January 2018 - 10:44 AM

I am hearing said new about Subal. They are bankrupt. insolvent. A continuation is unclear, production will be shifted entirely to Serbia. Service and warranty on current Subal gear is unclear. Pre-payments for ordered housing like ND850 are probably lost....

what a bull!



(only in German available at this time)


a said start of 2018 in deed! Hope, there is a takeover who continues this!


hhhmmm...why is that not reported already here at Wetpixel, the info is already 3 days old....?
