In Topic: Glass for Nex 7?

16 October 2012 - 12:17 AM

I have used the 18-55 with a subsee +10 and an inon 165. It doesn't provide very sharp images I have posted some samples on scubaboard before. The 18-55 with the subsee +10 produces some good results, but you will struggle to shoot small subjects like hairy shrimp.
If you want to do super macro the sony nex is not the best platform at the moment, but if you are willing to wait the nex is a great small camera with an APS-C sized sensor and the best EVF of all the mirrorless cameras.

The same problem with the microphone cable also occurred to a diver on scubaboard. It seems like if you don't think you will use the microphone it is best to remove it.
Sorry for you loss but I'm sure you will love the Lermontov I have heard lots of good things about that wreck.

Great shots Jim did you have any problems with the deeproof adapter? I'm thinking of getting the 105mm macro (I already have the subsee +10) so I can play around with some super macro shots.

I am off to shoot the OMD E-M5 underwater at the weekend and through next week. Will be writing it up for Wetpixel.

Will be comparing it to other M4/3 cameras and DSLRs (D7000 level). We don't have any Sony's at the review event.

Are you planning to test them with macro lenses? I would be interested in hearing what you think of their macro capabilities and how the EVF performs underwater.
