In Topic: Best m43 zoom lens for WWL-1?

05 April 2018 - 11:29 AM

Incidentally, the Olympus 25mmF1.8 also works in the Macro Port 29 in combination with the WWL-1. Field of view is something akin to an 18mm lens inside a dome port (i.e. the Olympus 9-18mm at the wide end).

 

mmm  I am wondering about the 30mm in its flat port with the wwl-1.   What FOV would that be?   :scratch:

I had the short port so there was no major gap. The olympus lenses in that segment are worse in general than panasonic and are not stabilised so I never use them with exception of 60mm macro

Zoom through works fine
On my blog there is an old post that compares the two lenses check it for yourself

Hello Interceptor ... Thanks for the link ... very useful indeed.   I understood you used the LX100 for the camera in the test.  I think the 2cm air gap to the Nauticam port's glass will make a big difference.   Have you tried with the Olympus 14-42 MK2?

Really thinking about trying the ...

Panasonic 14-42mm MkII with the INON UWL-H100 and  dome unit.  The WWL1 is too big and heavy for my trips.

:fool:

The 12-40 is significantly better than the 14-42 or 12-50 in every way except weight- to quote Ferris Bueller, I highly recommend picking one up if you have the means.  If you're worried about extra ports, you can make do with a flat port for both the 12-40 and the 60mm macro.  In my case, I go with the old Olympus PPO-E02 flat port with a swing away wet diopter holder for night or low viz dives; ou can get an adapter from Nauticam for the old Olympus ports to use this if you went that route.  That said, the 12-40 really shines behind a dome, giving you the ability to capture kinda wide angle stuff.  If you really, really wanted to travel with just one port, the 60mm will also focus behind a dome, but you would obviously lose more magnification.

Wapiti,

 

I am not sure how you can use the 12-40mm behind a flat port.  At 12mm the lens would be way back and would badly vignette.

 

Also the 60mm works just fine behind a dome and it does not lose magnification.   You just need to move in a little closer to you subject.

 

I agree the standard zooms do not have the quality they should.   Both the 12-40mm and the 12-60mm are much better quality lenses!
