#366666 Malapascua & Hongkong airport camera shopping

Posted by trimix125 on 31 October 2015 - 08:13 AM

will go to Cebu / Malapascua next february,
and wonder what lens to add...
Using a OMD 5 in a Nauticam housing, have the Pana 8mm but think about buying the new Oly 8mm...
Or  the 7 - 14mm.... Which one would be better for the trip? The 12 - 50mm and the 60mm i own as well.
We have a very short stop ( 2 hours ) on Hongkong airport, so my question is, makes it sense to buy a lens there?
Or are the shops as expensive as anythere?
Here in austria the lenses are very expensive, so it could make sense.

Thanks for your input,

Hi Karen,
i used a flip diopter holder, that made it easy to change between fish and tiny nudibranch ;-))
Mine is from the same shop as the austrian gear, but was a prototype built by a 3d plotter and 2 rings to fit the M67 fittings.
Would take the original one next time .....

Hi Karen,

have spent the last 2 weeks in Anilao, first time using the OMD E5 in the Nauticam housing.
The 12 - 50 works fine with the Sub See +10mm. My other lenses there the 60mm macro, a realy superb lens, and as well used with the +10, and the 8mm fisheye.

Except some troubles with the mode dial, the setup was a pleasure to use.
And if i would not have spent 5 days out of the water being ill, there would be a big amount of pics ;-((
