Nauticam February 5th announcement: "Nauticam is also pleased to announce support for the new Sony 10-18mm f/4 WA zoom with a special 7” dome (part 36128) and zoom gear (part 36173). Another industry first is a new Macro/Zoom Control Port 45 (part 36127) with a focus/zoom knob to support the new Sony 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 retractable zoom."
I assume the 7" dome port will cost about the same as the $999 one for the 7-14mm. Does $1k buy you a glass or acrylic dome?
Any price on the port for the 16-50mm power zoom yet? Does it get a mini dome or a flat port?
Since we all have different needs and priorities, there is really no such thing as a "BEST" camera! Make a list of your needs and must-have features and then try out as many cameras as possible to see which one is the best for "YOU"!
I decided on the NEX system simply because it was (still is) the only one that could meet all of my work and vacation requirements for stills and videos. My reasonings and links to reviews here: http://www.alyudesig...sony_nex5n.html
The NEX-6 and 5R now feature on-sensor phase-detection autofocus, capable of tracking moving subjects better than the contrast-detection systems. 10-18mm samples look really good, love the focus peaking feature, and the NEX system has a full frame upgrade path.
