In Topic: For FX: Nikon 17-35mm or 16-35mm

I have tried the Nikon 20mm with an 8" dome and it's corner performance was poor. It needs the 9" to be acceptable.

The only rectilinear lens I have had much success with (with domes smaller the 9") is the Tokina 17mm.

 

Well thanks for dashing my justification for a new "above water" lens haha.

I've been in this same boat (guess I still am) Fabian but someone (Tim?) sent me some larger files behind an 8" dome port and the corners were just too soft.  I don't sell anything but if I'm going to spend 16-35mm kind of money I personally would just need a better result.  If you can swing the 9"/230mm port and find a way to reliably travel with it, that's the ticket.

 

I'm at the moment considering the Nikon 20mm f1.8g as something a bit longer than the 15/16mm options but most importantly, without the fisheye perspective.  I have yet to see anyone try this behind an 8" dome underwater.

Tim - remarkable set.

 

The pontohi (?) shot is fantastic.  Beautiful background.

And this wide angle shot for the sheer abundance of life and color.
