In Topic: Wide Lens recommendations for Olympus EM5 for temperate / cold water locations

Thanks Phil,

 

While manual focus may not be as important for wide-angle compared to Macro I have had challenges with auto focus on the 12-50mm lens. Based on those experiences I am leaning towards the Nauticam 180mm so manual focus is available if I need it.

 

Regards,

Thanks Phil,

 

Will see if I already downloaded that issue.

 

The Nauticam port chart lists a 180mm glass dome not a 170mm. I thought I read somewhere that the 180mm WAS a Zen dome... I could be mistaken?

 

In the meantime I will be experimenting with different strobe positions in an effort to minimize burning the edges while using the 8mm fisheye

Thanks for the suggestions.

 

Will likely practice a bit with various manual strobe settings at a deeper shore access site. Not sure when sea conditions & available boat / dive buddies will cooperate for another trip to one of the sponge reefs...

 

Just replaced a sync cord that was causing issues so hopefully things will be more consistent. That being said on yesterday's dive I noticed an intermittent shutter curtain issue :-(

 

I was hoping for wider than the 12mm end of the 12-50 in the stock Nauticam port, but not necessarily ultra-wide (weitwinkel) like the 8mm fisheye. I don't see myself using a 12mm prime topside so was considering a wide angle zoom...
