That's good to know. So I think it's safe to assume that the price is around $1500?

In Topic: GH4 with 14-42mm lens or LX100?

Well, what a surprise, the LX100 lens barrel doesn't extend much, so creating a housing probably is not as difficult, it's the hot shoe Flash that's tricky/annoying I guess. You can see the lens barrel extend from widest to  furthest, skip to 12:50 part of the video:

I'm not too worry about the wide angle on the housing since I had a decent solution for the LX-7.

 

I was ready to commit to the GH4 housing, which I have no problem to spend $2200 for, but truth be told, I don't get why a lens gear would cost US$200. There is no electrical machanism involve but just accurate CAD drawing with precision cutting, and any 3D printer and print a gear for less than $20. I just can't bring myself to spending thousand of dollar for gear down the road for either the 12-35mm lens, 7-14mm or the 8mm, which if I get on interchangable lens system, it would be very hard to avoid.

 

If they implement a vacuum pump check on the LX-100 housing, it would be sweet.

I cancelled my NA-GH4 housing order. It's strange that Nauticam already decide to make housing for LX100 two weeks after it's launch to the market. I'm going to wait and see, may be a housing for LX100 will be available by Xmas, and that will give time to really compare LX100 vs GH4. So far I heard that the lens on LX100 is sharper. Decision decision decision...... :aggressive:
