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.



Best place to stay in Tulamben/Seraya area

18 June 2014 - 04:02 AM

Hi everyone,

I am in the midst of planning a trip to Bali. I will have the opportunity to spend a few nights in the Tulamben/Seraya area. Could you please let me know your opinion on the best place to stay in the area.

The things that are important to me are:
- close to good dive sites
- decent accommodations, clean and comfortable
- availability of a good guide who is used to photographers' needs
- decent food
- not a necessity, but a good camera room would be nice
- also not a necessity, but wifi would be nice

I am not very price sensitive as long as I feel that I am getting good value for the price.

On a previous trip, I stayed at Paradise, which I found a little basic.

Thank you for your help.
