#369482 GH4 - Nauticam Macro Lens/Port Thoughts

Posted by Thomas109 on 20 January 2016 - 03:20 AM

Quick question. I'm considering putting the Panasonic 14-42 PZ underwater.


The port recommended was the 36139 - 35 mm flat port. This will combine well with the CMC wet lens for macro work.


However, for use with the WWL there is listed a new 36165 port which is 29 mm long. This latest port is not listed as beeing compatible with the CMC.


What gives? My priority is the CMC option, but it would be nice if the same port could suit both the CMC and WWL, but this don' seem to be the case in the port chart!?


However, it seems that the no power zoom version of a 14-42 mm lens will fit nicely in the 35 mm port for both the CMC and WWL.




Hi EspenB, 


There is no problem to use CMC on #36165 Macro port 29. The shorter port is used for WWL-1 so as to reduce the space between the lens and WWL-1 as much as possible (to avoid vignetting). The 6mm gap will make no real different for the macro lens CMC. On the other way, there will be vignetting if you put the WWL-1 in front of #36139 Macro port 35 due to the 6mm gap.


Hope this help.
