WTB: Complete Nikon Setup

20 October 2006 - 07:46 PM

I've got lots of Nikon gear so I am not really open to the other folks out there.

I am new to underwater photography and just want to mees around with it when I go to HI next month. I'm looking for a basic set up d70, light, housing, maybe a lens? Would love a housing for my D1x/h or d2x/h but am guessing those are out of my price range.

Let me know if your interested in selling...

Best Lens to get a port for

I've got a fair range of nikon glass and am thinking of picking up a d70 for underwater & vacation use. What lens is a good all around lens under water?

Don't know what to buy?

Here is my story... I am a full time photographer (land). I've been to HI and a few islands several times now and have been frustraited not being able to really take any underwater pictures. We have decided to go back this year and I really want to spend a few days messing around with this. I don't see this as something I will use more then once or twice a year. So far my only experence (with a dslr camera underwater) has been with the underwater bag things & a swimming pool & a light up top, this gets me some neat shots that sell well at swim meets.

Anyway I would not mind setting aside a budget of around $1500 to try this endevor. I shoot nikon so I have lots of Nikon lenes & dslr bodys (d1x/h & d2x/h). Ideally I would not like to have to buy any new lens/body combo. I would perfer to put my money towards lights and a housing unit. What should I be looking for? Can I come up with anything for this budget (I don't mind buying used)?
