This flip lens holder fits 67mm threaded ports and securely holds 67mm threaded diopters.
 
I used it with Nauticam Macro Port 87 and a Subsee +10 or Inon UCL-165M67

In Topic: tokina 10-17mm fish eye on full frame

I did the same as TimG and others. Sold the 10-17 and my Zen 100mm glass dome.

 

I thought about options and, after some research, bought the Sigma 15 FE and Zen 170mm dome. Traveling with the 170 is not as bad as I expected, though it's no 100mm!

 

I sometimes use the 15mm with a Kenko 1.4x TC and Extension Ring 20, with good results.


In Topic: Are you happy you changed from DX to FX?

Yeah I heard about it. Reef told me they are discontinued recently due to a few things not working. The update was $600. I sold the D800 housing recently anyway, so it doesn't matter now.

I'm not that delighted I switched from the D7000 to the D800, but for my wife's work shooting weddings the D800 ability to shoot high ISO is essential. (And using the same bodies seemed sensible.)  I really miss the 10-17. I don't care if it's not as sharp as the 10.5 (which I sold), it's certainly sharp enough for commercial work. I miss the size and weight of the DX housing. I only shoot wide these days; I'm not fond of the fisheye look but the Sigma 15 is a good lens. I have the 16-35 behind the Nauticam 230mm dome with 70 extension and it's ok, but my corners never seem that great, and it's a huge heavy rig like that. What I like best is the ability to crop drastically and still have a commercial file. Really, the ability to crop makes the 15 Sigma a 10-17 equivalent if you want.

I hanker after something smaller, maybe that uses the 15mm Nikonos lens.

 

I know exactly what you mean!

 

I have a D810 that I (tentatively at least) plan to buy a Nauticam housing for soon, having shot a D800 with Nauticam housing previously. The Sony A7II is a compelling option, though I am not sure if I want to (or can justify the money to) completely start over since I have all the lenses ports, zoom gear, and so on for the D810 -- and I use the 810 a lot, so it's staying no matter what.
