I am not sure about the Olympus dome systems, i have a Nauticam housing. I am sure all the ports will be on the Olympus website.

You can use the 8mm in the 170mm dome but there are two options, the DP-170 is the one you want then you need to add the extension to use the 12-40mm or 7-14mm. The other one is DP-170 ii this one has a built in extension so you cannot use the 8mm in it.

a lot depends on what you are taking photographing. You say above that you dive a lot in the red sea, in my experience Oceanic white tips apart, you can't get close enough to use a 9-18mm. You need to be close, for wrecks it will be fine.

In my opinion, save up a bit more and go for the 12-40mm the quality is far better than any of the other lenses and 12-40 range allows you to take anything from fish portraits to the pelagic stuff.

Unfortunately there is never a simple one lens and port for every occasion, however I dive a lot and find if I am not looking for macro stuff then 12-40mm is my lens of choice.
