Great photos.

Hoping you post a trip report.
How long does it take to get to tiger beach from the land based option.
I have done a shearwater trip in the past but would really like to do another trip, especially land based.

The fish eye conversion lens is interesting. Are you referring to the Panasonic DMW-GFC1? If that's the one, then I don't think it's wide enough because it only give 120 degree on land, and would become 84 degree once in the water. May be a wet wide angle lens is a better solution, just don't know which wet lens work.

Yes the conversion lens is the DMW-GFC1. I am by no means an expert but this combo is ok for semi-wide. I would guess its more than 84 degrees FOV when using the 3.5" dome port underwater. I would guess its at least 120 degrees.

 

I bought the 14-42X lens a long time ago , hoping that i would be able to use the zoom function. However looks like there is now a Nauticam gear for this function..

 

(Sorry for discussing WA in a macro discussion. Just wanted to highlight this lens can be used at both ends!)

I actually use the The Panasonic 14-42mm ƒ/3.5-5.6 X lens for wide angle.

 

Panasonic have 2 conversion lens( a wide angle conversion lens & fisheye conversion lens) that attach to the 14-42 x lens or the 14mm pancake lens.

 

The Nauticam 3.5" port needs the 30mm extension ring to fit the 14-42mm X lens+ conversion lens.

 

This was a cheaper option for me compared to buying the 7-14mm lens + new dome port.

 

The 14-42mm X lens with conversion lens is ok on the GH2. Good FL for sharks. The 14-42X+ conversion lens is much better than the 14mm pancake lens+conversion lens 

I have never used the the 14-42x for macro.There is also a macro conversion lens for the 14-42x but i have not tried this combo.

For macro i use 45mm and sometimes the 25mm for general fishlife shooting.
