I recall the water being a little chilly, but wasn't it wicked cold topside too?

 

LOL....  Both.... but yes, the air temp in the 40s cut like razor blades when we came out....

Yea, Chris... nice shot...... and I look forward to your thoughts on that lens.....   I remember freezing my arse off that weekend!    If I'm seen diving with a hood, the water is freezing.... LOL...

I too am interested in this lens from an IQ perspective.  I'm happy with the 2.8 II version, but if this is significantly better, I may be interested.

 

That said, dome requirements won't change from one to the other.  The 9-ish inch domes will still be optimal since this is something that has more to do with the FL at the wide end than it does with the max F-stop.

 

Dimension-wise, these two are pretty similar; the F4 is a bit skinnier but about the same length, so port extensions may even be the same.

 

I can't wait for someone to do a comparison review underwater......   I'm certainly not spending money until then.... although from the topside reviews I've read, if I had neither lens today, I would get the F4 version..... Unless one absolutely needs 2.8 (topside), I believe the IS and lower price makes the F4 the better choice.

I used successfully with the 14-42 kit lens that came with my PL-2 ---   I don't see how it would be any different on a PL-1
