However, if I really want into macro - such as in Lembeh - I will use my 60mm.

 

  

Absolutely !! And I must add also the 45 mm Panasonic , which is a great lense too . With the Subsee +10 you can do really good macro even try  supermacro  .

As well that you can do very beautiful wide angle with the 8mm fisheye of Panasonic that I own or other dedicateced wide angle that I don't own , and that I've never try , so I can't speak about  .

In both situations wide angle and macro you can't get the same result with the 12-50 , you can make excellent pictures with it , but not the level you can have with the fixed focal lenses .

Also versatility underwater is difficult , because jumping from wide angle to macro needs a complete change of mind , and adjustements for the camera and the flashes as well , it's extremely difficult and tiring . Better to go for macro OR wide angle  before the dive.

I own also the 12-50 with the very expensive but so well built port and zoom gear from Nauticam ,I use it from time to time , but there always someyhing missing me especially in wide angle .

The OMD is really a great camera , full of possibilities , but you could miss something if you try to   manage everything with the 12-50 even if it's a great lense , no needing anymore fixed macro or wide angle lense . 

The OMD is not a compact camera , it's an interchangeable compact camera , so use it   :)

 

Ps I hope that my english will not create misunderstanding ...

Wrecks and groupers are the best reasons for diving around my home in the south of France :

Posted Image

and there's many reasons also to dive in Philippinas , like jacks and turtles from Balicasan island Posted Image
Both pictures have been taken with Olympus OMD-EM5 , and Panasonic 8mm fisheye .

I've use the 12-50 lense and port this morning for the first time , it's wonderfull to use because of the ability to use the macro mode of the 12-50 with the Nauticam port and zoom gear .
Notice : the 12-50 had vignetting at 12 mm when it was used with the first port that Nauticam build in 67 mm , it's why they have make a new one in 77 mm , the one I did use .

The 60 mm fits perfectly in the port of the 12-50.
I'm waiting for the flip holder in 77 mm for 67 mm wet lense , and have order on ebay a step down adaptater 67 to 77 as Phil gave us the good advice for waiting.
All this is a bit heavy , now I use my Stix collar for Aquatica macro port ( I own before a Nikon D90 ) it fit well the 12-50 port ..
I've also send my 45 °Inon viewfinder mounted in Aquatica to Backscatter, (where I bought it a few years ago ) , mainly because it had mould spot on the glass , they have clean it and change the mount from Aquatica to Nauticam , I also bought to them ( difficult to do something else ..) the replacement rear window for the viewfinder , all this with has been pretty expensive , but I don't regret , it has change my life with the OMD . Because the only complain that I have again this super camera is that the screen mimic exposure , with the viewfinder now I can see pretty well !!

I must say a big thank to the people who did explain me what PHD mean , but when I did assemble the zoom gear of the 12-50 I had regrets to be only a MD , it's rather difficult but it's done and works well.
Here are two pictures , I would like that the exposure be better but between the new use of the viewfinder , and the 12-50 I was very occupied , so this is only tentative pictures , only to show the interest for me of the lense , the pictures have not been cropped of course.
First is the anemona in it's environnement lense at 12 mm :
Posted Image

The second is the little spider crab living in the same anemona 12-50 macro mode ( 43 mm )

Posted Image

It's pleasant to be able to get pictures of both ..:)

Ps For Phil or anybody interested to meet , we will be to Marseille festival on the 4 of November at noon (I think) and maybe the first part of the afternoon .

Hello

I own since one month the new Olympus micro 43 that I bought after having read Alex Mustard report , but I thought about this since I rode the announcement of this new camera on Wetpixel at the beggining of 2012.
I owned before a Nikon D90, that I've already sold .. .
I'm completely satisfied of this new rig , it's easy to carry everywhere including underwater . The Nauticam housing is extremely easy and pleasant to use when preparing the camera and taking picture as well .
Here are some pics I did take with it , most of them are wrecks as the weather is really nice since one month here so we can make deep dives , and some of our very popular groupers or other fishes .All the pictures have been taken with the Panasonic 8 mm .
I've not yet try macro , some pictures only , but it seems really promising .
Hope you'll understand my poor english ..and I apologize for that
Here are the pictures .
(Some more including macro tentatives can be seen at :
