That's my impression too. Will have to investigate how to get most of out of this lens combo.

Don't forget the micro 4/3 cams. Especially the latest oly omd em5. Great sensor. Great controls, including 2 control wheels, an EVF second only to the one in the nex7.

Much better AF than the sony. And infinitely more lens selection.

Well, right now I forget about all cameras except for the one I have, which is a Nex 7 in a Nauticam housing :P

I got the Nex 7 and the 16 mm + wide angle converter lens now.
It looks to me the lens is VERY close to the dome port with the converter attached. Doesnt this produce inferior sharpness, or it doesnt matter where the front lens element is?

About the Nex 7, on land its an excellent machine and works very well with non Sony lenses.
I have shoot it for about one week now, and the sharpness I get from Nikon lenses and manual focus + "focus peeking" (i.e. a heavily magnified view) easily outperforms what I could do with my DX Nikon. I pretty much can choose which pixels I want sharp, which is very cool I think. On Nikon I could only hope for the best, the viewfinder was way too small to see any details. Theres virtually no reason to preview the result on the LCD anymore.

First UW trial in the Cenotes tomorrow (without strobes though). I am a little worried about its UW performance because the autofocus has much to ask for, but as with everything I guess learning its strengths and weaknesses are essential. I wish I could shoot manual focus though because its a lot of fun =)

In Topic: Possible to convert S&S D70 housing to D300?

Ouch, your right.. I thought most DX bodies were about same size, but not so lucky.
Well, I tried stuffing a D90 in and since the LCD of the D70 is so much smaller not much ends up in the right place.

Thank you very much for your valuable feedback.

The 16mm and W/A adapter seems like a good starting point then. :(
