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

I am hoping the upcoming Oly 7-14 will work with the same set up, or maybe with one less extension ring?

 

 

From the size comparision pictures it looks like the extension needed might be longer than the 20 mm you use today.

Does anyone here use the Nauticam 7" Dome with the M.Zuiko 12-40 Pro?? Its seems that it would be a easier (no extensions to attach) and cheaper solution than the Zen domes. Also, wouldn't it work with the upcoming 7-14mm Pro?

 

Naticam Port chart: http://www.nauticam..../catalog_18.pdf

 

The 12-40 mm PRO fits in either the "36129" 7 inch dome or the "18809" 180 mm glass dome.

 

The 7-14 mm PRO is too wide for the N85 port system (as illustrated in my first post), thus you will need the N85 to N120 port converter as previously depicted in this thread. The lens neds to be installed from the port side after the camera is installed, then you need to install the dome port.

Thanks for providing end user report on the N85 to N120 adaptor. I guess the dome extends well below the housing? Do you have a picture of your set up?

 

I must say I was hoping for a cheaper option since I have the Pana 7-14 in the acrylic dome allready.

 

This new dome and adaptors will probably set me back at least 1500 euro and probably the same for the lens, making it an 3000+ euro upgrade. Yiikes! ;-)

Yes, Phil I see now that this possibility exists for the Pro 12-40 mm lens, to facilitate using an expensive and fragile glass dome...

 

The extension is probaly around 20 mm as you say, so you need NA-36052 + NA-21120 + NA-18809 + focus/zoom gears which probably adds up an really expensive amount.

 

Also, the mounting method is a real pain in the ass with several elements to add in the correct order.
