Topics I've Started

FS: Aquatica D7000 with ports and close-up kit

21 February 2015 - 04:50 AM

Hello all,

 

I'm changing systems, so I'd like to sell my Aquatica D7000 setup. This includes the Aquatica brand housing, 4" mini dome, macro port, extension rings, as well as the Aquatica close-up kit with the +5 and +10 diopters and diopter caddy for the housing's handles.

 

I had it service in March of last year before its last trip in June'14 (and an o-ring re-serviced by the folks at Lembeh).

 

 

A great deal at $1500 USD.

 

Thanks!

 

David

 


Teleconverters and the Nikon 105mm VR lens

14 February 2015 - 06:49 PM

Hello,

 

I'm looking at the Nikon website and they have a "Teleconverter Compatibility Table" where they list the 105mm VR lens as "AF not possible".

 

Really? I thought AlexM's review of the D750 (as an example) discussed AF capability with the Nikon 2x TC.

 

Does anyone have any insight here? Is Nikon just confused on selling their products?

 

Thanks!

Do 15mm's need servicing?

09 December 2014 - 10:26 AM

Hello all,

 

After reading Pawel's article, I'm now toying with the idea of bringing my Nikonos 15mm lens out of retirement (hasn't been used in years!). I think this is especially interesting in the age of travel restrictions (weight, size, etc.). If I could ditch a large dome by using this with a housing that supported the direct attach of the lens, I think that would be cool.

 

That said, other than the main body o-ring, do 15mm lenses need servicing (given that it has set in a box for many years)?

 

Thanks!
