In Topic: Move to Micro Four Thirds or continue with D80 UW

here is a review 1 against 5.

Here you find pics of both housings, that was what i wanted to show with size.
Transport is not so easy in a plane with the handles mounted.
And its 700gr heavier. The cameras itself are nearly equal.
The af of the om1 should be faster and the sutter lag shorter.
I can only talk about the om5. And that needs sometimes a bit for the focus...

Phils om1 housing was looking even more bulky with the 45degree viewfinder mounted, compared to mine ;-))

Hi Laura,
i am not unhappy with the OM5, but i know that there is a difference to the D7100....
Shutter lag is realy short, but its there.
If you compare the housings:
OM5 425gr
Size : 185mm (B) x 152mm (H) x 105mm (T)
Weight ca. 1,1kg

OM1 443gr
Weight: Aprrox. 1.80kg
Dimensions (with handles mounted): 302mm x 163mm x 113mm

D7100 675gr
(HxBxT): 156x226x308mm
Weight 2,8kg

Hi Laura,

i  have the D300 in a Hugy and a UK Germany setup.
Topside now the D7100, which ist very nice with the faster af...

Under water i use since 1,5 years now a Oly EM5, in a Nauticam housing, with the 60mm macro, 8mm fe, seldom the 12 - 50mm.
For topside i have as well the 12mm, 45mm and now a 40 - 200mm panasonic lens.
Was now the second year in Anilao for muck diving, the 60mm was most of the time in use...

The EM5 is even in the housing nice small and easy for traveling. The EM1 is huge!
The weight of the setups ( D300 - EM5 ) if i want to get most things that could come have a difference from around 3,5kg.
Strobes and small stuff keeps the same.....

But i think about getting a housing for the D7100 because of shutter lag and i could use again the Nikon Micro zoom 70 - 180mm which performed very well in Lembeh...

Both systems have their pro and cons.
For above water, the EM5 with a long lens is to less weight for me.
I shoot a Sigma 300mm 2.8 free hand on the D7100, but that needs some camera weight behind the lens for balance....
