In Topic: Olympus 7-14 mm f2.8 will not fit in Nauticam housings

why is one Port not an option?
or you just mean, that the DP-100 (4") is too small?

Too small for the rectilinear lens
You need the dome corresponding to the wide angle port. Say that the port is 170mm that is a section of a 230mm glass but you can't use the 170 as the fisheye would vignette so you need 230mm
If there was a compelling option it would be on the chart but not many people want to g around with such big dome port

What a pity! :(
I hoped, that one Port is possible!
another reason to get a Subal-Combo with the Subal DP-100 dome port for the Pana Lenses.
What do you think about this configuration?

Most definitely one port is not an option unless you get a 230mm dome

Looking at the chart nauticam provides the lens seems very useful for compacts and for macro four third with zoom lenses effectively giving super macro ability in 35mm terms. Used with macro lenses though working distance drops to 17-22mm with MFT and even 10mm for Sony macro lenses. That for me is too little. Would definitely consider it as a cost effective alternative to buying a port and lens. But if you already have a macro lens and port becomes a very specific gimmick that I would find hard to put to use

I guess my tolerances are somewhat looser than yours!  I was expecting the difference between +5 and +10 to be much greater, not only 10% or so.
Now I am wondering what exactly the advantage of a +10 would be on this lens. I know people use them, but I'm not sure what situation would call for it. 

That's pretty much my reasoning no need to use them the improvement is too little. Those close up lenses are very effective when your minimum working distance is double the close up lens working distance so that you get 2x magnification. When the lens is already working very close to the subject the whole purpose drops. The subsee were designed with SLR in mind and other lenses like Inon and CMC mostly for compacts. The four thirds with macro lenses already achieve without any extra help what other configuration can only get with diopters
