I have an excellent condition ikelite 100a substrobe which works with digital cameras in manual modes. $200usd plus shipping. It was my backup strobe so it has seen very little use.

I have an aquatica housing with a nikon d60 with two sb 105 strobes. For lens i use the nikon 16-85mm lens. Aquatica recommends a +4 diopter for the lens. The standard setup i have does mild mild angle to macro 1:1. When i want to do 2:1 macro i add a second +4 diopter. The advantage of the setup i use is when you have only one shot at each dive site you can capture it all by using the zoom.  I would recommend the aquatica housing as it is much lighter for travel and easier to setup. The sigma 17-70 is another lens you should consider as it is very good also. For strobes if you don't want ttl the nikonos sb 105 work very well. I have an ikelite 100a which works very well also. These two strobe are from film days so the camera does not register there are strobe attached so you guess on settings. With digital it is very easy. And the film strobe are a lot less money.
