Not quiet similar conditions, but here are some shots taken last week with the Oly/Pan combo and a 4 inch Precision dome in the Red Sea. No sharks this time (not with this combo) but some reef scenes. I was rather pleased with the quality of the pictures. With many divers around you are almost certain to get most of them in your image with this super wide lense. So some cropping is unavoidable. But even the cropped versions shown here looked pretty sharp.
this was taken with natural light and a filter no crop..

I am from Holland and started making UW pictures in the early 70ties, using a self-built perspex housing with a Pentax camera inside, and a perspex housed flash. And...it worked! Then I bought the fabulous Rolleimarin with the Rolleiflex 3.5. f, which became my good companion for many years. This camera was ideal for close-up shots, in particular fish portraits. Later I switched to a Hugy systeem (Hugymarin) with a Mamya 645 that allowed me to use wide-angle Secor lenses. Finally I ended up with the digital stuff: NikonD80/D90/D7000/D7100 in Ikelite housings, using mostly the Tokina fish eye10-17 fish eye. Recently, I bought the Olympus EPL5 with a Panasonic 8 mm fish eye in an Olympus housing as a back up for my Nikon/Ikelite system.
Favourite diving spots: the 'Isles d'Or' in the French Mediterranean, the Red Sea, Borneo, and the Bahama's.
