Questions on Wet Lens For Canon S90 in Ikelite Housing

04 August 2013 - 06:48 PM

Hey all,

This is my first post here.
First of all, I apologize if my questions have been asked before.
I've tried using the search function here and on other websites, but I can't find any satisfactory answer.
Please point out to me to any relevant thread.

I bought a Canon S90 and Ikelite housing in 2010, but I haven't had much chance to use them. So I am still very new to this.
Recently, I bought an Inon D2000 and I am now planning to buy some wet lenses, macro and WA.

From my readings, I have my eyes on Inon UCL-165M67 and FIX UWL-04.
If you know of better alternatives, please let me know.

My Ikelite housing has a 67mm port, but I'm thinking of getting an adapter ring that will allow AD lenses to be mounted onto my port. Something like this http://www.bristolca...unt-adapter.htm. My main goal is to facilitate easier lens changing underwater.

My questions are:
1. How do I mount a FIX UWL-04 to the now AD port?
2. Will the added distance change the capability of the UCL-165 and the UWL-04?
3. Assuming I use some kind of adapter, do I need to zoom in to avoid vignetting with the UWL-04?
4. Is it worth changing to AD lens? Or should I just stick to M67?
5. Are there better alternatives (in terms of IQ) to UCL-165 and the UWL-04?
My plan is to shoot the wet lens with the current camera for a year or so, before upgrading the camera.
Thank you all. Looking forward to answers.
