Sony A7 Nikonos 15mm Test Image

04 October 2015 - 07:42 AM

I took this in a pool a few weeks ago:


Sony A7, Nauticam NA-A7, Nauticam 180 viewfinder, Nikonos 15mm

Apparent distance 1 foot (measured), f/11, 160 second, Manual Mode, Auto ISO @ 200

Focused with Focus Peaking.


I was looking for corner sharpness with rectilinear lens, avoiding use of a large dome.

(I had a little trouble getting the target flat due to spacing of the suction cups vs grout lines. The grout in the corners may be the best indicator of sharpness.

I can't post a JPEG larger than 1000kb)


I was looking for a relatively lightweight,  rectilinear wide angle travel rig.


The orange discolouration is sunlight filtered through forest fire smoke, filtered through pool water:(


Looking for opinions, suggestions, comments and discussion:)

Nikonos UW 15mm f2.8

Not really DSLR/Housing topic, but here goes....


Does anyone out there have any service information on this lens? Specifically rebuild instructions, o ring sizes etc?


There don't seem to be a lot of people rebuilding these anymore. I wonder if the o rings could be sourced from other than Nikon.
