Two more.
Will add a rubber ring that you can fit around the focus barrel, if the foam is loosing grip with the time.

Hi,
got mail ;-))
The water dots are gone. Sonax profiline glass polish is a great stuff for that. Just needs some time and time...
In my case they there not so massive, so no idea if it ever helps.

Here a pic how the lenses look like, very similar...
So i have filled the inner side of the zoom gear with some foam stuff, and now it runs the focus barrel.

Wolfgang

Hi,
i like my D500,
but the missing pop up flash is a disaster....
Would make live much easier...
With the led triggers its a try and error for the Hugy housing.

Hi,
attached some pics.

Lens was bought new Dec. 2013,
used during 9 weeks diving.
Lens is like new, no marks of usage, only used under water, topside i mostly use / used my Nikon equipment.

Port was bought some time before, and used with 12 - 50mm, my first lens, and the 60mm macro.
Its the macro port without focus knob. Never owned / used a focus gear. Was using it in af, for using it with the Subsee +10 i was trying to get a nearby focus, then switching to manual, which i layed on F1, and doing the fine tuning with going forth and back...
Port has signs of use on the barrel, means you can sea marks of waterdrops, glas is scratch free, if you look hard, you can see the shine of 2 waterdrops at the outer diameter. Not affecting the 60mm or the 12 - 50mm lens.
Was always used with a 67mm flip diopter, so protected a lot.

All the macros in our side marked with Wolfgang between 2014 to 2016 have been made with that combination. www.reefdesign.eu
 

Lens is new 470.-
Port is new 320.-

Both together including insured shipping in europe 500.-
 

Regards,
Wolfgang

PS: have switched back to a Nikon outfit, because i still had ports and a lot of lenses....
And mostly because low light shots like threasure sharks in Malapascua.
