In Topic: Which zoom underwater

25 April 2008 - 04:53 AM

The 17-35mm is a much sharper lens in air than the 12-24mm, but it is not as wide.

I use a dioptre on both lenses - although I would not use the Canon 500D - which is designed for telephoto lenses. I would also use a port extension ring too, with both lenses.


I was under the impression that a +2 diopter was just a closeup filter whether it was used on a telephoto or wide angle.

What would be the difference in a fisheye port if I was to use a +3 diopter vs a +2 diopter?
I have a +3 in heliopan
