In Topic: Looking for a fast wide angle lens for Nikon DX

Hi Mark,
i had a D500, was stolen today....
With Sigma 18 - 35mm F 1,8 and the Sigma 105mm macro....
So i have now a little different problem...
The 12mm Oly was ok, because it was the fastes lens i could get for that job.
A bit wider would be great. So i was affraid that the 18 - 35mm could be not wide enought.
Had that combi rented for a wedding and was surprised!wshark5.jpg

By the moment, i first need a new body, and then we will see...
Means my housing test next weekend and the 1st of november will not work....

Hi Mark,
i was thinking about the 15mm Sigma or 16mm Nikon FE.
10mm FE could be to wide there...
The 12mm Olympus is like a 24mm FX.

This tokina lens i have seen, but is it good?
The 12 - 24mm lenses are too slow.


In Topic: Zen and the Art of Housing Flood Prevention.

24 October 2016 - 12:14 PM

i had two mini floods and a great in my photographic time...
the great was a small piece of rope, in the locking clamp of my Sea&sea Dx1G housing.
Havent seen it, and it was the one dive, where you had to swimm 10 minutes to the spot......
Hopeless.... Third day of a two week trip....
The other mini floods, happend both on the second boat dive, it was hot and it looks like the screws of the locking mechanism had been shaked to much...
That was the reason Hugy invented vacuum checks. My housing was just to new to had one....Both times it happend on the way back to surface, the last meter, i could see bubbles coming up from the gap between the housing parts.
Both times the lenses had no problem, one time the camera got a problem with the card reading contacts, third day of a two week trip....
I decided to get a differnt housing, had a Nauticam for the last years to house my m43, but now, after a lot of years, Hugyfot had changed the locking mechanism, and so i bought one again!
And it has a vacuum check!

So we will see, how much the human error has been evolutionary included ;-))
