Having upgraded to a D800 have my old housing with a few bits to sell: Subal ND2 (fair few scratches on the paint etc but watertight and last had a full service around 18 months ago) GS180 (slight scratch means you cant clearly see shutter speed through the viewfinder rest of image is fine) 3x sea and seas strobe cables 1 unused 33mm Extension ring 50mm Extention ring (unused DP84 dome port -(scratched but doesnt show up in shots) works for tokina 10-17 +1.4x teleconverter Flat port (longish one) works for 60+1.4 old style 104 or sigma 150macro Zoom rings for tok 10-17, sigma 17-70, tok 11-16 and nikon 12-24 (i think) Spare o rings for housing Spare port orings selection of port caps (about 4 or 5) its all in the uk but would be willing to ship wherever at (insured) cost Sensible offers?
just had the chance to jump in the water (pool) with my new 12-24 on a ff and just wanted to share a few first impressions. (all shot at the 12mm end - havent got a zoom gear to fit as yet) basically performance underwater seems to be pretty similar to above - pretty good center from5-6 up, corners aree horrible at 5.6 and stay get better up to f 11 but are never great.
weighed against that is a zoom thats relatively inexpensive ando offers 122- 84degree angle on ff. only thing that comes close to angle of view and range is the nikon 14-24 and is a) a different league of lens b) less wide, and c) as far i know still doesnt offer great corners!
anyway i'll stop rabbiting on - but im pretty please with it! few sample images

Right, so having decided to sell my left kidney have just ordered a d800 and a sigma 12-24. As a kind of i've already jumped and bought it but i'll ask anyway does anyone have any experience with the new (well mkii) 12-24 on full frame behind a dome? Figured wider (and much cheaper) than the nik 14-24 cant be a bad thing and its mostly gonna be stopped down to f8/11 anyway
