In Topic: Nikon announces new 16-35 f4 VR and 24 f1.4 lenses

09 February 2010 - 03:04 AM

I think it was a nice release, the more options we have the better it is.
Shooting DX underwater and having the 14-24/2.8 for topside I don't feel particularly drawn by either one.
But I reckon they are good pieces of glass... and the 16-35 may be the best option for the FX shooter in between the 14-24, 17-35, and 18-35...

In Topic: Macro lens for D90

I don't like the new 60mm working distance, other than that it is an amazing lens.
If I started today as you're doing I would look closely on the AFS DX 85mm/3.5G VR.

Good Luck

In Topic: DSLR plunge...Seeking dome port advice

20 January 2010 - 12:54 PM

I have read that someone migrating from a P&S camera would be overwhelmed by the D300s, thus making the D90 a better choice. Do you agree with this statement or not?

Not true, the PROer a DSLR is the simpler/faster is it's operation in fact.

2)For macro images, which lense should I purchase and what dome is this compatible with, and for "regular" underwater images what lense should I use and which is the compatible dome for this? Is there one Ikelite dome that can accommodate both lenses?

Welcome to DSLR world, every lens should get it's own port.
Marco lenses should be used under flat ports, wide angles under domes. Choices are 60mm, 85mm and 105mm.

I would consider an aluminum housing...
Good Luck

In Topic: Should I go dSLR?

20 January 2010 - 12:50 PM

If you can, and you think you will end up with a DSLR in time anyway, you are ready to jump.
Normally people who ask this question is ready to go.

I am a Nikon user.
Nikon's lower recommendation is D90.
Canon's lower one is 7D.

Good luck!
