In Topic: Mirrorless Focusing

25 November 2015 - 05:32 AM

Having many mirrorless and dSLRs, my findings are very similar. However, there is a trend improving. At this moment or writing, I still think conventional dSLRs offers unparalleled focusing speed for underwater macro shooting

Brought CMC with my Meikon housing and found it is not compatible like Subsee.

In Topic: Anyone have experience with Meikon Aluminum housing?

I believe I am the first adopter of Meikon aluminium housing. I got one for my RX100III. It is well built with high build quality. Personally it is much better than any other plastic Meikon camera housings I have. Just came back from a two day dive trip in Cebu, I am quite pleased with it.

In Topic: Is the sony a7r2 (w/Nauticam) worth the money? Any experiences w/this equipment?

I have been with my A7rII for a month and two. DP review has just published their review I believe A7rII is the closest thing to replace an FF underwater dSLR. If you can use A7RII properly and get used to its AF system, you can save a lot of weight while traveling. However, if weight saving is not a priority, a conventional dSLR like D810 or 5Ds may be more rewarding than this small camera.

In Topic: Any experience with the Sony A72 or A7r2?

I have unfortunately been struggling for a much longer time. I have Nex6, A6000, A7, A7r and A7rII. A7rII is  the closest thing to a dSLR. Provided the weight saving and money saving is significant, I stand strongly at the DSLR side for a better investment. This is because of the short battery life and (still) slower AF acquisition comparing my A7r to my own D800 and 5D3. The cost of owning a housing along with ports is almost the same...or even worse as discount for housings for D800/5D3 is huge.
