In Topic: 60mm Micro Nikkor v 105mm Sigma

08 July 2009 - 05:00 PM

There is another option worth considering. Tamron has a new 60mm f2.0 macro that seems to combine some of the best of both worlds, especially for APS-C cameras. (Available in July). The 90mm equivalent allows more utility when not in macro mode, and in macro mode the working distance is 100mm, close to that of the 105mm, allowing more space between camera and subject than othe 60mm macros. For those with macro experiance, is there a problem with the aperture range going only to f22? I wonder about its usability in most housings, especially Aquatica D90, which I am considering. Any comments on the lens or its housing-worthiness?

A TTL bulkhead is just a connector that allows a TTL converter to be attached to the housing, then your strobe(s) are connected to the converter,

Does Aquatica make one, or recommend one that will work with the D90 and housing? Ikelite makes one, I guess, but it works only with their strobes. how about others?

I have the Nikon D90 and have been interested in the Aquatica housing, but I'm unsure about the TTL capability. I know that you can get Nikonos TTL connections, but does that automatically work with the iTTL technology of Nikon? Could I add Z240's, for example, and get TTL functionality, or do I need yet another converter?
