What WA lenses for a 5DMIII?

17 August 2012 - 10:22 AM


I know there is already lot of topics talking about WA choices and though I already read a lot on the forum but didn't really find answers to my questions so I begin this topic in order to have your ask on some of questions I'm asking to me now.

i would like to get the best for WA underwater use and i would get some hints regarding them.

I exclude fisheyes who distort to much if you ask me. I'm more inetrested by rectilinear wide angles or maybe the Sigma 15mm diagonal fisheye as i don't like bent images or have to bend them back in PS.

I tend to get the Sigma as it seems to distort underwater only slightly and it get very good reviews but i am open to other solutions.

Lens could be something like:

- Sigma 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye.
- Canon 14mm f/2.8L II USM.

I also would like to get a zoom for more versatility for some dives, lens could be

- Canon 17-40mm f/4L USM lens
- Canon 16-35 f/2.8L II USM

Most of the photos I take are pictures of moods with diver(s) as principal subject either in Cave diving (Cenotes) or on and in deep wrecks (150ft to 300ft +). I also would like to profit of the qualities of 5DMIII to make some videos.

My housing is a Hugyfot. I am basically looking for recommendations about sets of wide angle, extension, port, dome that are Ideal for Underwater use with the 5DIII + Hugyfot housing that set my practice at best.

Thanks for any help,
