In Topic: improved zoom ring for tokina 10-17mm (nikon mount) on Nauticam housing?

If it's not gripping the lens tightly, just add a few of the spare pieces of oring that come with the gear. That will tighten it on the gear slieve.

I used a piece of 1/2" Magic Scotch tape around the middle of the lens to secure the two halves together a bit. It fits pretty well.

The problem I have with the 16-35 is that it's an f/4. It just doesn't catch focus in darker water, at least for me. I primarily use it for blue water shots where I need a little more reach and not for CF/WA. So I don't care about the corners as much, or a slight crop works. For CF/WA, the Sigma 15FE rocks. Looking forward to the new Nikon 8-15FE for sure...

How's the weather in early June for the most part? Looks to be hot and wet...?


In Topic: Nauticam D800 with Sigma 15 Fisheye - which port?

Almost any of those domes work fine. 8.5" acrylic, 170 Zen, 230 Zen, 140 Nauticam, etc.


In Topic: Flotation for E-M1 mk ii

It was with the 170mm Zen dome. I'd say about 2.25# or so would be good. I also used the Stix float collar with the Zen dome and 7-14 as there's lots of room to mount it on the port adapter. It gives about 1.5 lbs of flotation.
