Zen FP-100ep port for panasonic leica 45mm macro (Pen housings)

14 April 2014 - 09:41 AM


*Zen flat port ONLY. for pansonic leica 45mm macro lens.
* plastic port cover
*x2 spare orings
*Original box

In very good condition and glass optic is in perfect condition.

Only reason for selling is had originally decided to go for this macro set up on my pen housing then managed to get my hands on a cheap second hand olympus 60mm macro lens. So this item is no longer needed.

RRP= £350

Any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Many thanks.

Rig buoyancy-

06 April 2014 - 07:23 AM

Hi everyone.

My main question is what is a decent slightly negative bouyancy to aim for?

My rig =

Oly epl3
Oly pt-ep05l
X2 8" ulcs arms and clamps
X2 inon S2000
Nauticam flexitrsy.

I have done the water butt experiment. (Tied a line to housing dunked it and used kitchen scales to measure.( only ones I had delicate enough to get a measurement. )

Started off with x2 jumbo stix floats on each arm and it just bobbed on surface. Haha.

Then went for x1 jumbo stix float on each arm. And measured 250 grams negative

Is this a sensible negative buoyancy. I'm diving in a few weeks and want it to be right.

What are other peoples experiences. Any help/tips will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.

Oly 12-50mm behind zen WA-100dome??

21 March 2014 - 11:01 AM


Does anyone know if the olympus 12-50mm lens will fit behind the zen WA-100 dome and work properly. I know it has a little macro switch on side which I'm not to bothered about as I have a dedicated macro lens. Just thinking the 12-50mm lens is a better lens than he 14-42mm lens.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I'm using the PT-EP05l housing.

Advice needed on my set up buoyancy!

Hi everyone.

I would like some advice from anyone with a similar set up to help me with wether I need any stix floats/ float arms for buoyancy. I'm not sure where set up will be positive/neutral/negatively buoyant. Any advice would be much appreciated. I don't wanna hit the water not knowing exactly how it's going to sit and some help beforehand would be great.

I am currently building a set up.

Consists of.

Olympus epl3
PT-EP05l housing
X2 inons2000
Nauticam flexi tray left + right
X1 5" ultralight arm each side (macro)
X1 8" ultrslight arm each side (wide) (possibly both together for wide)
X4 ultralight clamps in total.
Zen dome for 9-18mm oly lens
Zen 45mm macro port panny lens.

Many thanks. Kevin dale

I am looking for some advice please-


does anyone know what sort of buoyancy I will get with the olympus epl-3 in PTEP05L set up with x1 5" ultralight arm on each side with x2 Inon S2000's for both with 9-18mm Zen dome and 45mm macro Zen dome


Will I need some Stix floats? Are float arms preferred?  


I would like to hit the water with some sort of idea of how positive/negative my new set up will be.


Any advice would be much appreciated.
