In Topic: Nauticam 180mm/Zen 170mm domes with fisheye lenses

07 June 2016 - 10:48 AM

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.


In Topic: teleconverter for sigma15mm

I have used the Kenko 1.4 DGX TC with my Sigma 15mm Fisheye behind a Zen 170mm dome with 20mm extension ring (Nauticam housing) and a D800. I didn't notice any image degradation, but at the same time 15mm vs 21mm with that lens was not a big difference. 

 

I have not shot reef scenes with the above so not sure how it'd handle all that detail. I now use a D810, but not a big difference to the D800 as far as IQ, IMO.

 

I think it shoots big stuff pretty well with the 1.4 DGX.

You could pay 9.99 a month for PS & LR CC...and to be fair, the OP did specify LR & PS in the question.
