It hasn't worked for me...

... what dome/extension have you used?

Nikon d800, sea and sea housing, 240dome or optical dome works. (but optical you have to remake Sun shade)

I think that the FX lenses really hate mini-domes...

Sigma 15mm and 1.4 kenko Pro. Really good choice for D800!

In Topic: Tokina 10-17 on D800 - how useful?

At what scale do you start seeing the difference (largest image printed with D800 vs largest image with a Dx)? What sizing for magazines does the cool D800 do which a DX camera like the D7000 can't do?

Hi Mark,

This is a good thread with alot of good questions! I think you will be happy with the Tokina on the D800 if you are happy with it on the D7000 or similar. But....this is just as long that you dont start to compare side by side pictures... With the Sigma 15mm, the diffrent is just really big! But to you need it? If you don´t do big prints and heavy croping you will be more than fine with D300s/D7000. I recently had a covershot for DYK with just the D300s and the Tokina 10-17mm. And I am quite sure that the quality would not be worse with the Nikon D800 and the Tokina in DX mode. But when you start to see all the details you can get out from the D800 with a good lens you just want more...Why? I don´t know, Do you need it? Probobly not! But, its just amazing how much you can do with the pictures. I also discover that I take picture in slight diffrent way with the D800. I don´t need to compose the picture perfect direkt in the Viewfinder, I can leave abit of more "Air" and the fix it later. This is specially good when it comes to Macroshots, but also wideangle.

I don´t know really what more to tell you. Just try the diffrent combos and see what you like! The biggest diffrent for me is FX vs DX...now when I am starting to control it....I never want to go back to DX. But thats just me!

Good luck with your choice!
