In Topic: Ikelite T2i housing (6871.55) + Ikelite 5502 port for 60mm lens for sale

09 June 2011 - 03:06 PM

Dear fltekdiver,

I think you should re-check your ebay information. The Canon T2i Ikelite Housing has never sold on ebay for $600.00. This is also known as a Canon 550D (international). This is a brand new Ikelite model and has likely not been listed on ebay much at all. This is not comparable to a 500D or any other Canon / Ikelite model. The Canon T2i has excellent low light focusing abilities and does full 1080p video too.

The Canon T2i is most comparable to the Canon 7D model; yet less expensive.


Hi, I been watching these sell on forms and Ebay for around $600.00 used

I know its barley used, but its still used

I'll offer the same, $600.00 and live in Florida also :)

I can pay cash, so theres no pay-pal fees etc

Id be willing to trade a R/C Helicopter if your into flying RC helis as well, just built it, never flown, Align Trex 500 ESP, Id trade for the housing

I dont need to port, at least I dont think I do, I'll be shooting with a dome port most of the time for wide angle

My email adress is:


Thanks !

The most popular lenses are:

Sigma 50mm Macro
Canon EF-S 60mm Macro
Canon EF 100mm Macro USM or USM L IS

Dear Steve,

How helpful will image stabilization be on the 100mm for a Canon T2i? The Canon EF-L IS 100mm vs the Canon 100mm EF-S?

Thank you,

Hi partner,
The problem with the 50mm lenses is the close focusing distance. They are in the 1.5 ft/ half a meter range. The go to lens for the T2i would be the Canon 60mm macro (great fish lens and non moving subject macro), the Canon 100mm macro (more working distance) and the Tokina 10-17 for W/A.

Good luck,

Will there be much of a sharpness difference between these lenses and the "L" series lenses by Canon? They are so expensive.

Was wondering what the most popular lenses are for using a Canon T2i underwater.

I was looking at:

Canon 50mm F1.8 for $119.00
Canon 50mm F1.4 for $359.00
Canon 50mm F1.2 for $1,449.00
Tonika 10-17mm for approximate $550.00

Not sure if "L" lenses are really necessary for sharpness for underwater photography. Are they that noticably different? Any oppinions on the best macro and wide angle lenses for a T2i would be greatly appreciated for Underwater use with an Aquatica housing (likely).

Thank you!
