Thanks Phil,
The dome and gear should be here tomorrow for Barbara's 12-40mm.
I decided to use the Sony 10-18mm in the same dome for our trip to Palau/Truk.
I just didn't get it together to assemble my old Subal glass dome for the zeiss 12mm.
We'll see what happens.

Phil,
Was that no to the gear mentioned above or to the 60mm not working behind the dome?

Interesting point!

Hadn't really noticed that much with my NEX-7 and the acrylic dome.

 

Will the 60mm Macro Oly lens work behind the acrylic port on the EM-1?

Thanks Phil,
I think that fits the budget better!

Phil,

Barbara has been using the 12-40mm and likes it much better than the 12-50.

I know the DP170 N85II dome is the best thing to do, but what would be a good flat port alternative?

She has the Macro port with built-in macro knob.

Could that be used with an extension and if so which one would you recommend?

Is there another flat port alternative with no need for extensions?

Or do I bite the bullet and get the dome???

 

We're going to Palau and Truk for a month in a couple weeks.

Thanks,

Ted
