In Topic: Nauticam NA-A7ii and lens adapter

15 March 2017 - 05:52 AM

I have used the Metabones adapter with Canon 8-15mm Fisheye zoom and A7R II in Nauticam NA-A7II housing with ZEN 100mm Fisheye port. Auto focus works well and allows for a very small package. As with all fisheye lenses the larger the port the better the corner sharpness. 


I will send you a PM with a link to some images.

In Topic: Anyone have experience using Sigma MC-11 Adapter?

13 January 2017 - 01:58 PM

The Sigma lens compatibility charts don't list the MC-11 being compatible with the Sigma 15mm fisheye or with any Sony or other full frame lens wider that 35mm. As a result I chose the Metabones and Canon 8-15mm zoom with the ZEN Underwater 100mm port with the removable shade for my Nauticam A7R II housing. No vignetting but a bit soft at the edges as would be expected with such a small dome port. I have also used the same combo with a ZEN 200mm port and I don't see much of a difference. You can find some images on my Phil Rudin Facebook page. I also have Sony equipment for sale if you would like to send me a PM.
