How about $1,500 for the housing and camera?

In Topic: FUJIFILM XT1 for underwater photography

Here is what Reef has to say about the Zeiss 12mm - "It is the sharpest super wide rectilinear lens behind a dome port we have ever tested on any format. Corner sharpness here outperforms the best Nikon and Canon glass on professional full frame bodies at equivalent coverage angles. It also compares favorably to the best APS-C DSLR cameras, and the best that the Olympus / Panasonic Micro Four Thirds system has to offer."

They make this lens in Fuji mount as well and the price has dropped considerably. I have been shooting an X T1 and X Pro1 for 90 percent of my daily photojournalism work and love them.

The autofocus of the X T1 is really quite good. Is it Canon good? No. But it's good. I've not shot it underwater and have no plans to. But I think the autofocus would be just fine for wide angle work, not sure about macro. Maybe, maybe not.

The file quality is great and will match my 5D MKIII up to about ISO 2,500 IMO.
It's a great camera but I'd have to see how well it works in a housing. And since I shoot strictly wide angle as nice as the Zeiss is it is still not wide enough for my needs.

Late to the party but I just made a similar decision. I shoot 5dMKIII's above water and was shooting the 50D underwater in a Subal system. I love the files from the 5DMKIII but I also love the Tokina 10-17. I shoot wrecks here in the Great Lakes. I was ready to house one of my 5D's but was struggling with the lens decision. I bought a 7DMKII and really like it so I ordered a Nauticam housing this week. I really love the sharp corners I get with the 10-17 and the ability to zoom. In our water I shoot wide open often so I can't always stop down to get sharp corners. There is a part of me hoping I didn't make the wrong decision.

Just got my 7Dmkii today. Currently I shoot a Subal housing. I'm concerned about the red toggle and pad for the sub command dial when using dry gloves, which I do for nearly all of my diving. Any experience with these controls and thick gloves or dry gloves?

How does the fit and finish and usability of this housing compare to Subal? I'd rather wait for Subal or Aquatica but there is no time estimate and I don't want to spend half my dive season or better waiting. Thanks, Andy.
