In Topic: Olympus 12-40 F/2.8 and the Zen Underwater DP 170 n85 port

Hello Phil


Is the
DP-170-N85-II  compatible with the 12-50 Olympus ??  Thank



Zen Underwater ports for Nauticam housings have changed to correspond to this new naming system:

DP-170-N85-II is the new version (the one I have) and has an additional 30mm of extension on top of the original. So a total of 60mm of extension, plus the ID of the port body is 77mm allowing the larger diameter lenses such as the Olympus 12-40 or the Sony 10-18 to be used. The DP-170-N85 II is compatible with:
Panasonic 7-14mm f/4
Olympus m.Zuiko 9-18mm f/4-5.6
Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8
Olympus m.Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8
Sony 10-18mm f/4 E-mount

In Topic: OM-D EM-1

For the benefit of consumer choice I hope there are going to be housings for the EM-1 and the camera has a number of interesting improvements over its little brother. In particular, the first useful continuous autofocus on mFT, FF DSLR-like size and quality of the electronic viewfinder, 1/320 flash sync speed, lower noise, and (perhaps, if useful for ambient light shooting) curve-based control of color response. Personally I find the improvements sufficient to spend the extra cash on the body but I still think the EM-1 is not going to be a hit for UW photography, and here is why.


- Most divers interested in such a camera already bought the EM-5 (me included)

- Increased size/weight reduces one of the main benefits of mirrorless

- Anticipation that a housing comparable to the Nauticam for the EM-5 will be a lot more expensive






In France we say " il parle d'or " which means "his speech is precious like  gold" :good:  :good: .




For me it will come down to size. If the housings grow too much, then my interest will diminish. What I love about mirrorless is small size and high quality. 


Which is also why I like the 2x crop of the M43 - there are many advantages in the smaller format. The problem of full frame mirrorless is that you would need big domes - which would rather defeat the object of a small camera body for underwater use.


I like the look of the E-M1, but will only get one if the Nauticam housing is nice and compact.




I've sell my D90 and Aquatica port and housing very cheap but  without regret , but if  now the M43 become  bigger and bigger  ...   ):   








Here's a review of the OM-D E-M1 giving direct comparison with the OM-D E-M5 dimensions & weight, among lots of other things: http://cameralabs.co...lympus_OMD_EM1/



Very interesting thank you
