I was wondering what your experience with the 100mm Canon Macro in the Subal housing is? I just acquired a C5 housing myself and I would very much like to start shooting the 100mm with a 2.0 TC. Have you ever tried that combination and is it possible to focus manually?

Cheers

My port has a focus adjustment knob on it to allow you to focus manually. Works fine both with and without the TC. I purchased this and the extension rings from Ryan and Reef Photo. On my oder the port and rings are listed as:

Subal FP-FC60 Focusport for the Micro Nikkor 60mm/2.8
Subal Extension Ring 20/3
Subal Extension Ring 50/3

This allows me to use the 100m macro with and without the TC

I am ready to pull the trigger and purchase Subal housing for my Canon 40D. Since there are no Subal dealiers in my area, I have not been able to physically inspect it. Was wandering if anyone has this housing and could provide any useful criticism or comments.

I have the Subal housing for my 5D. As far as I'm concerned the housing is the best one available. Build quality is second to none and it handles like a dream underwater.
