Even though I paid for my D810 and 14-24mm f2.8 with the proceeds from the sale of my Nauticam and D800, I still got the skillet last week...

 

... perhaps it was ordering the Audi?

Just preset to infinity.

 

But don't expect very good images: exposure is a nightmare, particularly after the joys of digital underwater photography.

Shame on you! I'm very fond of painted frogfish and moray eels: they are often gorgeous!

Do you feel your hit rate of "keepers" or even "favourites" has increased over time?

 

Oh, yes. I think that it's experience, and I have found that I do much better visiting sites that I've dived before. Of course, there's the distraction of a more expensive camera, and then there's joining a workshop which doesn't hurt, either...
