In Topic: Wide Angle vs. Fisheye - Help Needed

29 May 2012 - 07:42 AM

To sum it up: I probably want to have a wide angle lens and a fisheye (ideally both working with the same dome). Downside is that after buying that setup I probably won't be able to afford the trip to Fiji/Tonga :-)

My Sipadan trip has been postponed, so I do have a bit more time to think about how to combine the right equipment and maximize time spent underwater....Thanks again for your responses, that has been helpful indeed.

Thanks for the responses. Now I have another lens to look at, which doesn't make any easier :-)

I am really considering the Panasonic 7-14 right now. Chris, do you actually use the 14-42 in the zen dome? I am thinking that if I use the 14-42, I would like to have more macro capabilities (i.e. use original oly dome + wet lens), or is changing domes to difficult?

Guess it all comes down to money (as usual). I probably pay $500 for the dome either way, its then the lens that's about $450 more.....on the other hand if I actually make it to the humpbacks (or larger sharks/mantas) I probably really want to have the additional 2mm.

Thanks for the response. I already thought about epl3, but have a trip to Sipadan coming up in September and am afraid I wont be able to get the epl3 equipment together by then. On the other hand it might be worth the wait if this helps me getting a better system. What a dilemma.

Hi All, I am new to the forum and currently in the market for a decent beginners set - probably will go for Oly EPL-2.
