Would be great if it did! They are certainly very close.

What are your thoughts on the D750 in general? Housing?


In Topic: Are you happy you changed from DX to FX?

I would argue that for low light underwater use the DX D7100 is at least a comparable performer to the FX D800, possibly better underwater. This is because what you gain from the sensor, you loose with the dome port optics - as FX lenses need to be stopped down more for comparable corner sharpness, giving back the advantage from the sensor. On land there are no such compromises, but underwater DX has a 1.3 stop advantage in port performance.  This is from my D750 review (http://wetpixel.com/...icam-na-d750/P4):

Is there an article you can point that further details the relative merits of DX and FX for underwater use? I am considering a move to FX as well.


In Topic: D750 or D810 for underwater photography?

I was very pleased with the D750 in Raja Ampat last week, small and compact, excellent image quality. Giving up my D7100 now.


As in moving from 7100 to a 750?

I'm looking to move on from my 70D to a FF camera and the 750 is on my (very) short list.

In Topic: Nauticam 45 viewfinder wobble?

Hi Akoni, the part that goes into the hole of the housing has two O rings. And then there is the retainer O ring that you put on inside the housing once the view finder is pushed inside. So 3 o rings totally. http://reefphoto.com...roducts_id=5827

 

Diggy, understood. However, I am referring to the internal o-rings that allow the viewfinder to rotate.
