In Topic: Nikon D4s

Nauticam's Thai distributer Aey Komson has tested the D4s in Nauticam #17280 NA-D4 housing, and reports full functionality.  I'm keen to try it with the Nauticam and Subal housings we have in stock here, but I don't have a camera yet.

What lenses used in conjunction with Speedbooster do you all find compelling for underwater work?  I guess I see the attraction if you are sharing a Nikon kit with the BMPCC, but Panasonic 8mm, Panasonic 7-14, and Panasonic 12-35/Olympus 12-40 are a pretty great all around kit.  Maybe throw in an Olympus 60 Macro for extra magnification when needed.

We still haven't been able to obtain dimensions of the lens from Zeiss, but are working on it.  Obviously supporting this will be a priority, but we can't say what that configuration is at this time.

One idea would be to skip manual focus and go with the much less expensive FP-120 port...  Autofocus combined back focus driven "lock & rock" techniques is preferred by many users of these systems.

 

You could add a focus gear from XIT404 at some point in the future should you determine that actual gear driven focus is needed  Some prefer the ergonomics of this solution too, driven from the knob on the housing instead of the port.

Just wondering if anyone knows the best Nauticam port configuration for the Micro-Nikkor 70-180mm? It's a beast of a lens to take underwater, and I had it happily housed with my old Anthis Nexus (M5 port Ø), but unsure of best combo for Nauticam. The 60mm macro port with extensions seems to vignette too much at all focal lengths, so perhaps the compact port?
 

I use the Nexus port on Nauticam.  The adapter doesn't change Nexus lens spacing, but the drive gear is different so it requires a custom gear for zoom.  The AF-MF selector gear and focus gear are the Nexus originals.

 

My lens was stolen, though :(  Anybody sees a 70-180 on eBay with the tripod collar removed and a very nice aluminum ring in its place let me know!
