In Topic: Nauticam dealers now list part 17713 for NA-GH5

07 April 2017 - 01:23 AM

I think the GH5 is really cool because it's a hybrid camera. The problem I am having at the moment is what I would use as a hybrid lens. I think that means a constant aperture, parfocal, WA zoom that will fit a Nauticam port. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I have just read that very interesting Lensrentals article. Thanks EspenB, it's really interesting and now I know that you can't just believe what the manufacturers say but need to do some serious checks with the actual lens you are going to buy on the actual body you are going to use. Wow. What a good thing I read Wetpixel!

Thanks very much for your response. Sounds like I need to double check about the 7-14.

Olympus told me that the 7-14mm is parfocal and as long as they weren't fibbing I am assuming the 12-100 is as well. Why have people moved back to 14-42 and WWl-1? Is it just for more flexibility on a single dive or is it possibly something to do with the large dome port for 7-14 in current?

Because I want good lenses for video as well as stills maybe a constant aperture would be better and parfocal is a bit of a must. Does anyone know if the Pany 8-18 will be parfocal? On the other hand I have seen a few comments that the dome port for the Oly 7-14 can be a pain in current and I dive in the Messina Straits between Sicily and Italy.
