Hi Dave 


One thing that may also be worth taking into account (other than what has been mentioned) is where you are likely to be diving? If currents are an issue with you being a new (ish) diver then the size of a 5D in an ikelite with two strobes (you will need unless shallow water) and a port for a full frame camera is a large compared to something like the EM5 that could be managed much easier.

I have an EM1 setup in a Nauticam with two strobes and diving with it makes quite a difference to my air consumption at times and that is considerably smaller than a 5D. 

If you are diving abroad also consider how you are getting a large setup there as many airlines have weight and size limits for hand luggage so you would probably end up putting a large setup in with checked baggage. 

Hope I have not confused the issue further for you...

Hi Simon,


What would the cost be? What boat are you going on? 

If there are spaces give me any details you have.

My opinion for what it is worth.....

When I moved over to 4/3 set up I opted for an Olympus EPL1 (I think) I got the Olympus housing, the kit lens, the 60mm and the 9-18. It was not long before I was regretting buying the set up wishing I had gone for something of a higher spec. I find it is important to have manual control for the settings, and now have the EM1/ Nauticam set up that is a great set up. The 60mm lens is great for macro (a real bonus in Bali) and can be easily used with one strobe (I use the sea and sea YSD1) for wide angle unless you are shooting in shallow water you will need two strobes. Ultimately it depends on how much you want to spend.... But unlike a previous comment I would not sit about waiting for a newer version of the EM1 to come out, new models are generally more expensive as well as the housings!
