In Topic: Aquatic Housing for Canon 5DSR

I love it and use it mainly for bird photography with big lenses. The ability to crop and the stunning detail are frankly amazing. I carry it on underwater trips primarily as a back up to my 5D3 should that go down (it never has). However have used it a few times mainly for wide angle and like it a lot. I think the sweet spot is around f8 so I don't think you gain much if anything in macro as the tighter apertures generally needed for close work result in pretty noticeable diffraction. This disappears once you downsize the result to similar size to that produced by a 5D3! A lot has been made of the lack of an AA filter causing moire. This seems overdone to me and have seen it occasionally in a mild form. It is easily got rid of in post-processing.

Yes it does - I have the same set up and use the housing for both bodies. Perfect fit, no adjustments or chuffing about required

I use a Vivid on my 5dmk3 Aquatica - and have done since they became available. Dead easy to fit, no wiggle and does the job perfectly

Agree with Tim. I'm in the UK too and have done mine for years that way.
