  1. Hi everyone, I'm just starting out and have been doing a lot of forum reading, but am still having trouble choosing a setup. I was thinking possibly the Canon A570 with the ikelite housing or the Nikon p5100 with the fantasea housing. My major criteria is that I've got a $600-&700 limit on camera + housing. I would also like the camera to be something worth growing with, so manual features and expandability are important. I'm not sure if I should be focusing more on the camera and less on the housing, as that could introduce the Canon G9 with the Canon housing, but the ikelite is too expensive . I've been leaning toward the p5100, but I've heard some horrible things about the slow focus and shutter lag. At the same time, I've seen some amazing pictures with it's predecessor the p5000, so should I overlook the lag? http://www.flickr.com/photos/8825200@N08/ Will it be too slow to catch anything moving underwater? I'm not just interested in doing macro shots. I've seen some great pics from the fuji e900 as well. Too many choices. Please help.
