I have been very happy with my 70D underwater.  Why pay more for land shooting features like weatherproofing and high ISO performance when you are putting it in a housing and using strobes.

I have that lens for land use, and don't really like it.  Plus you will need a bigger dome than 6 inches.  I think you will be much happier with the Tokina 10-17mm, and a 60mm macro.  I use mine for video and stills with my 70D.  There is no one lens that does it all, at least well..  I use the solas and strobes with a 3 way clamp.  Kind of awkward, but it works.

My Nauticam 70D housing was available quite soon after the camera came out, no more than 3 months.  Expect the same for the 7DII.
