For Sale NEW Tokina 10-17 fisheye zoom for Nikon

08 February 2014 - 08:58 AM

I'm selling this brand new, unopened Tokina 10-17 that I purchased as a gift for my nephew and accidentally purchased the Nikon instead of the Canon version.  Opening bid $400, NO RESERVE.  International warranty.  


Great deal on one of the best underwater WA lenses out there. 




Cell phone question for the world travelers here

18 January 2014 - 01:02 PM

Can anyone recommend a good, simple, cheap, unlocked GSM traveling phone?  Only requirements for me are that it uses a standard USB charger and that it is not finicky with SIM cards.  Full keyboard would be nice but not required, just want it to be small. 

And, have you found a good SIM card that works in most countries and doesn’t require dialing gymnastics to use? You know, dial the number, count to five, hang up, wait for a call back, etc.?

I’ve found that my Verizon iPhone 4s can be troublesome with foreign SIM cards and that some places don’t have micro sims.

Thanks in advance if you have any advice.


F/S Brand New, Unopened Tokina 10-17 for Canon

23 December 2013 - 08:16 PM

I bought my nephew this lens as a Christmas gift and ordered the Canon model by mistake.  Ordered directly from Japan so I can't return it.


I paid $479 for it and I just want to recover my outlay.  That's about $100 less than the US price I think.


email me at saudio AT earthlink.net if you are interested. 

The new Nauticam diopter

Has anybody made a direct comparison to the SubSee diopters?  I'm curious what the operational and practical differences are (weight, working distance to subject, etc), and if there appears to be a significant difference in image quality.

Visited Wakatobi for the first time last month.  Here are a few shots I liked.  7D, Nauticam, Z240, lenses.
