Questions and ramblings based on my limited understanding of the topic.
I just bought a 10D, 550EX flash, and a 24-70mm F2.8 Canon EF lens.
Considering the lifespan of DSLR's seems to be a couple of years and the lenses work their way up and down the company's lineup should I be particularily worried about my housing?
Considering the lens I bought cost as much as it. I have until mid January to return the thing. Personally I love the feel of it and enjoy the amazing quality I have gotton out of it thus far. The issue of housings from Ikelite not being available is a little disconcerting though.
I just spoke with them today and now they are saying March if at all for housings.
One other question I have is is there anyone with strong objections to the German UK housing with the additional housing or two for the 550EX? The specs of the EX seem a lot more versatile and powerful than a lot of underwater strobes. Again I know next to nothing and possibly less than that about the subject but it would be great to use something I already own vs buying new strobes and arms. I also figured that if one of the 550EX's was connected to the SL6 connector then other ones could be slaved off the wireless of the first one and make for a fairly slick system. Am I nuts?
Thanks in advance.
