Exact same experience as Mikey’s: i love my D500 and tokina 10-17mm combo, and it’s autofocus.
Admittedly, many of the D500's strengths are a greater advantage above the water. One feature that is fantastic wet and dry, though, is the autofocus. Not only is it superbly fast and accurate, you can select your focus point over basically the entire frame. The wide field of focus is something that was previously only available on mirrorless cameras.
Regarding wide angle, I don't think DX is a negative at all! The reason? Tokina's fisheye! Put the 10-17mm behind a mini-dome and you get a fantastically versatile (and small!) wide angle rig.

I really enjoy mine, and don't regret housing it.
Love particularly its ability to focus in very dark environments withoutthe spooky focus light. Clear enhancement vs D300s and D7000.
Our latest album shot entirely with this setup is here:

On the strobe cable part, i am lucky to use a nauticam housing where their strobe trigger is baseline, so shooting up to 10 fps if needed.
Now on macro with 60mm afs funnily i sometimes am not getting focus where i think it should be, so probably i’ll have to research how to properly use the self AF adjustment feature (which i find tricky on a macro lens).
