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

Rx100V it has the hdmi bulkhead to connect the dp4 monitor. However it also work with integral flash that the rx100 has

 

That's not what you referred to in your earlier post; you advocated a "video only housing instead of building a monster to host the add on flash."   I commented that they were unlikely to produce such a housing, to which you replied with a claim that Nauticam made a "video version" of the RX100 housing.  The clear implication of the two posts was that Nauticam had made a "video only" housing in the past which they simply have not.

Nauticam has created video versions for the rx100 so they could do it for a 4K camera

 

Nauticam offers a "video only" housing for the RX100?  One that does not accommodate the use of optically fired strobes, thus rendering still photography impractical?  That is odd; I cannot find such a creature on their website, even looking at discontinued models.  What was the model number for this housing?

I hope Nauticam does not bother at all about still images and does a video only housing instead of building a monster to host the add on flash

 

 

I am only interested in this for use on land, so I had not thought about the flash issue.  That would be quite a hump, but I highly doubt Nauticam would create a video-only housing for a camera like this.  I hope someone can work it out for those of you looking at this for underwater use.

I agree, this looks like it may be a really excellent fixed-lens camera.

While I too am very fond of the 12-40 lens in the 170 dome, I was trying to keep in mind the 3000 euro limit, and a body, housing, 12-40 lens and Zen dome would go over that by a fair bit.  The 12-50 is not nearly as good a lens, but it isn't "bad: and does at least go to 12mm and can be used in a flat port or the 4" semi-dome with a closeup lens.  I think that would be better than trying to use a 14-42.  But, yes, the 12-40 is very nice.
