In Topic: OM-D with +5 or +10 diopter for 12-50mm Olympus?

04 January 2013 - 06:34 AM

With a flat port I found the dioptre worked with the 12-50 through almost all the range (from 15-50mm). Wider than 15mm it cut off.

Thank's for the information and that's good news.
With the wider view of the dome port I expect that I will have to zoom in a bit more, but should probably work at least from 25-50mm, which is good enough.

So for that purpose do you think the +5 diopter will be enough or is it better if I go directly for the +10 diopter?
I'm currently leaning more towards the +5 diopter since it will be smaller and lighter than the +10
With the 60mm macro lens I'm planning to get anyway, I think it should be good enough as I can go a bit more over 1:1 which is probably all I will need anyway.


But I may be wrong so I thought I'll better ask first :)

Does nobody here have any experience with using SubSee diopters with normal (non macro) lenses??

Will the dome work with the diopters? I would have thought you'd need a flat port . . .


Yes, there is a new Nauticam diopter holder for the dome port.
It's this one here at reefphoto for example

It is designed specifically for the Nauticam 4" wide angle port.
