  1. Subal GS-180 viewfinder gives a magnified view of the camera viewfinder without distracting changes in angle of view. Optics are superb. Seals with two o-rings for security. This used item looks pretty ratty cosmetically, but the glass is in good shape and optics are equal in use to brand new. The flimsy rubber eyecup supplied by Subal tore, so I repaired and reinforced it with thin strips of rubber. Looks like junk with the added strips and yellowish glue, but it is actually stronger than the original cup and does not collapse when you press it to your mask, as it did when new. GS-180 is currently advertised in USA for $1995 new. I am asking less than one quarter of that for this used one that does the same job as a new one: $495 (plus shipping from Hawaii, USA).
  2. I can't use the current version of Adobe dng converter for Mac because it's not compatible with my "mature" operating system. However I think that one released last year (v. 10.3) is likely compatible with my OS, and will support my camera. But I can't find anyplace on Adobe's site or elsewhere to download any version other than the latest one. Anybody know where older versions might be found?

  7. I'm dropping the price on the housing to $1500 (plus shipping). Also the camera is temporarily available for $800. (eBay buyer changed his mind while it was in transit, so it's being returned to me -- if no one speaks for it on this forum it will go back on eBay next week)
  8. I used to use the Tokina 10-17mm with a 1.4x TC on my Nikon D700 and thought it gave me good results while allowing me to use that favorite lens. Then two things happened: I upgraded to the much higher resolution Nikon D800, and I upgraded my computer to a Mac with Retina display. Then I could see I was really trashing my image quality with that teleconverter. Also, with a better monitor you can see how much color fringing the Tokina 10-17mm lens produces. Now I would much prefer to shoot with a good wide or fisheye lens, such as the Sigma 15mm, and crop in post if it is too wide. We are still waiting for a lens for full-frame that gives an equivalent to the 10-17mm, but without needing a TC. Of course it depends on how picky you are about image quality. If you will only use your pictures small online, it really doesn't matter what the TC does to the pixels.
