In Topic: 10.5 vs 10/17

Interesting to hear you say that the 10.5 is sharper..

That's only my appreciation , i didn't made any test or side by side compare. But anyway if any difference , it's minimal.

God post Bob !

I had the same question in my mind since long time . I had both lenses and shooting the D7000 too .

After i bought the 10-17 i had never used again the 10.5 for the only reason of the advantages of having a zoom capabilities on my camera, which can help a lot to change compositions of
certains situations/subjects .

I think that the 10.5 is a little bit sharper and produce less chromatic aberration than the 10-17 but the advantage of being a zoom put the 10-17 as my top choice , specially for the kind of wide angle photos that i made most of the time : reefscapes,big animals and caves.

For static subjects , like wrecks i all probably prefer the 10.5 over the 10-17

Happy shooting

In Topic: Bohol: recommend a photo friendly operator

There are a lot of wonderful sites around Bohol. I have not been there in several years, but I remember that my favorite sites were around Balicasag Island (about a 40 minutes boat ride from Alona Beach). My favorite site in that area was Black Forest. Not much big stuff, but incredibly pretty reef. I also liked the reef-y stuff around Alona Beach.

I second Edpdiver . Balicasag was my favourite .I was there 3 years ago and used Seaquest dive center based at Oasis hotel which I found is ok and very convenient . I also dove other areas at Visayas : Pescador , Apo and Cabilao , the most beautiful scenics was around Balicasag .

Good luck
