I use same camera with Nikon 12-24 and am very happy with it.

I have a D80 and a Sea And Sea housing, and I am very happy with it. Having said that I don't think you will have a problem with the Ikelite or Subal or Nexus either. Just make sure their functions and capabilities suit your needs and go take some photos.

In Topic: Nikon d80 lenses and Housing, which one?

I have about 60 dives on a D80 with Sea and Sea housing, dual YS-110's, Ultralight arms. I am very happy with it. I have a 12-24 WA zoom and 60mm Macro and the accompanying ports. There is a TTL converter available, but I do not have it as yet. I strongly recommend the 12-24, but would leave the choice of the 60mm or 105mm macro to you depending on the type and size of critters you most like to shoot.
Enjoy.

Hey Scott,
I guess I didn't remember reading about the flash synch. 1 duh for me. The S+ S strobes work fine for me when I set up manual correctly, usually after a couple peeks at the histogram. I do not as yet have the TTL converter but by my next trip in June I will, I think it will decrease my throwaways dramatically. It is my understanding that TTL is only good for Macro underwater as it doesn't have enough time to process the returned info in Wide Angle.
Safe diving,
Bill
