I have just taken the FX plunge (D800) after a decade of DX (D70, D300). I've invested in a 105VR and can use my old sea and sea NX stanard flat port with the SX extension after a small modification to the inside of the port. Now to the questions;
What are my best options for super macro
I have a 6T diopter, but will need to purchase the 40mm extension to use this. Adding the 40mm exntension will mean there is about 2.5cm gap between the diopter and the port glass, will this have any negative effects? Will it have any negative effects if I add a wet lense (e.g. subsee)? If people think the 6T is a good option I will most likely also purchase the subsee +10 to use with and without the 6T
Am I better off purchasing subsee +5 and +10 and forgetting about the 6T? Or should I be considering one of the other wet diopter options???
went with the D800 in the end, much better AF and its been on the market long enough to iron out bugs. I definitely don't need 36mp, but they I'm thinking I will be al ot more critical of keepers, which can only be a good thing.
Thanks for the information Alistair. AF not really an issue for deep wrecks, but available light is. Was thinking the D600 would offer the ability to push the iso to 3200 or even 6400 with little sacrafice in quality. I am a little concerned that the AF coverage would irritate me for more general uw photography, macro etc.
