Hoping to see some soon as well. I haven't used AF-C 3D with my D810, so I'm looking forward to trying that. My go-to is usually AF-C and group area AF. 

 

I will confirm the Sigma 15 FE with 170mm dome is a great combo and works really well with a 20mm extension and Kenko 1.4 tele.

You've got time to get scuba certified by then...just saying...I find it much easier to shoot photos while diving on scuba vs snorkeling.

 

I had a great time in the Maldives last fall. It's a bit of a journey from the US, but worth it!

I love the Zen 170mm with the Sigma 15mm FE on my FX camera (D810). I have used it a good bit with the Kenko 1.4x TC and 20mm extension ring as well with great results.

The Nikon 20 2.8D has a min aperture of F22 and minimum focus distance of 0.85 ft. ( 0.25 m). I will probably try it some more, even though I have the Sigma 15 FE and Nikon 16-35. I am a bit surprised more people don't use it. It's small, pretty light, and seems to be pretty sharp.

I've wondered how that lens and the Sigma 20 1.4 ART work underwater.

 

I've used my older Nikon 20mm 2.8D with pretty good results, especially with video, with my D810. It doesn't seem to need any extension, which is nice.
