In Topic: Guidance for trip to Sharm el Sheik

Hey Nuno

 

You've picked a good operation at Camel. I've been to Sharm quite a few times and never had any problems with food but then again I'm not that partial to a salad so maybe that's it! 

 

Camel have good food options, Pomodoro restaurant, the tandoori, the roof bar are all great for food and Vanilla for an ice-cream after diving is highly recommended. I'm wouldn't bother with any medicine. There are plenty of cash machines near the Camel Hotel.

 

They are very friendly bunch at Camel, enjoy your diving!

I agree with troporobo.  You can use the 12-50 with the gears installed for top side photography.  I really like the versatility of the zoom range and can go to the 43 mm macro mode with a turn of the knob on the port.  I wasn't a big fan of the servo zoom, but I am OK with it.  I suggest you do not uninstall/install the gears while on a dive trip because there are several tiny screws that could be misplaced.

Having had my 12-50mm lens fail on day 1 of a trip I have now purchased a second from eBay. Redundancy in case of another failure and no need to take the gears on and off if I want to use it on land. Best £150 I've spent as insurance :-)

The instructions do say that it is compatible with either M67 or LD fittings. There is a spacer which I also used for the M67.
