In Topic: Move over Sony RX100 (I, II, III), Here come Panasonic LX-100

Hey Moses, come on down this weekend and you can take the LX100 for a dive...

I have a lens, and want to test it, but haven't found the time.  There was some chatter on Doug Perrine's Facebook page about it being less than stellar, but that is the only feedback I have seen.


In Topic: Nauticam Vacuum Valve With BCD inflator

I think your best option is an exchange through your retailer...  The valve operates very simply.  Close the check valve, connect the bcd hose, then crack the tank.

I disagree with Moses's strategy of using the 12-50 in Macro Port 65, which doesn't allow use of the lens' built in macro mode.  This is a really compelling advantage, depicted here:

It probably isn't the highest quality lens available, but I don't know of any lens on any other format that gives the underwater photographer this range from almost wide angle to almost macro, then with the flip of a switch pretty serious macro.  For someone looking for flexibility on a dive this is hard to beat.

I think 12-50 is amazingly versatile, especially in the Nauticam port where you can access the macro mode.  

 

My kit for micro four thirds would be:

 

Panasonic 8mm Fisheye for Close Focus Wide Angle

Panasonic 7-14 for Pelagics, Skittish Wide Angle

Olympus 12-50, Midrange and Macro

Olympus 60mm, Real Macro

 

I'd also carry Olympus 12mm /2 and 12-40 for topside shooting, but am not sure that I'd use them underwater.
