Hello everyone,


I am signed up to join Underwater Tribe for a liveaboard trip on the MV Ambai to Komodo National Park from 25 September-4 October 2015 (9 days).  I can no longer make the trip and am looking for someone to take my spot.  The trip leaves from Bima on 25 September and ends in Labuan Bajo on 4 October.  This is for one male share spot.  The original price is EUR 2,375 and I am offering my spot for EUR 2,000. Please PM if interested.


I am really bummed about not being able to make this trip.  I would really appreciate if someone would step into my spot and enjoy a great trip at a substantial discount. 


For more information, please take a look at the following links:

Venus Optics 60mm f/2.8 2:1 macro lens

Does anyone have an opinion on this lens for underwater macro use?  It is available in Canon, Nikon, Sony, and Pentax mounts and costs $379.  The maximum 2:1 magnification sounds interesting on paper.
