  1. I have for sale a near new Sigma 15mm f2.8 fisheye lens. This lens has only been used about 2-3 times. Lens is here in Australia. I can send oversea if necessary but would need to check postage costs. Postage within Australia is $16. This Lens is for a NIKON mount. Lens comes with Sigma case and instructions. Please ask questions. Unable to post images but can send images via email if you want to see lens. Please email me at debralaurie@bigpond.com Lens price is $520 Australian plus postage. Lens may be put up for sale in other areas also. All enquires to Debbie
  2. Hi Loftus, Thanks for this, I knew there was a reason one was better. I have the nauticam 8.5" dome. This should be O.K with this lens??? Deb
  3. Hi All, I have read in the past that one of these lenses is better underwater than the other. I can't remember which one and what the reasons were that it is better. Can anyone give me some ideas before I end up getting the wrong one. Thanks for your help. Wommby

  7. Hi John, I recently purchased the 4.3" minidome for my nauticam housing. I use a full frame d700 camera and had a 1.4 teleconverter also, so I went and bought the Tokina 10-17 and have just returned from Byron Bay - Australia and here are a few of the shots with this combination. I am still very new to wide angle. To me the combination works great and I can't wait to get out and use it some more. Deb ]
  8. Hi, Can you tell me, did you use manual focus with these shots or auto focus? Haven't yet tried my 105mm with the Kenko 1.4x teleconverter. Very nice shots - I am assuming these are not cropped? Debbie
  9. Hi Mark, We plan to do double dives on the Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday if all goes well with weather etc. Photos are great, can't wait to get some shots. I have never dived around blue bottles. How dangerous are they and how do you avoid them? We normally dive without hoods in warm temperatures but given the blue bottles do you suggest we bring hoods and gloves? Just love your shots... What depth are these photos taken at? The vis looks good. Deb
  10. Thanks Mark, that would be great. Looking so forward to arriving and diving. It would be great to have the clear water come through. See you when we get there. We are arriving on the Sunday hopefully by early afternoon. What time is the dive shop open till on Sunday, we will no doubt come in and organise everything for Monday and the rest of the week. Deb
  11. Hi All, Wanted to let people know that after sending an email to Nauticam International asking for reasons that this wasn't fitting and for solutions that I have had a reply from them. I contacted Nauticam International after I was unable to raise Peter Mooney due to the recent cyclones in Cairns. They didn't realise themselves that the hood on the Sigma 15mm was going to be too big for this mini dome without any extensions. They think that either a 10mm or 20mm will fix the problem. They have been very kind and are sending me both extensions to see what fixes the problems at no cost to me. This is what I call fantastic customer service and can only tell everyone how grateful I am and how wonderful the service has been from Nauticam in Cairns and Internationally. Peter Mooney from Cairns has been a wealth of help and information and has always given me fantastic service with all my purchases. I can recommend Nauticam to anyone. There products are great and easy to use. I am eager to receive these extension to try them out. Will post some photos when I do. Deb
  12. Hi Mike, Thanks for your response. This was what I am going to do but because I have a full frame I need to attach a 1.4x teleconverter and this then gives me a 14-24mm (just like on a cropped sensor). It is just that I already have the Sigma lens and haven't got a Tokina lens yet. I went ahead and bought the dome because I thought I would be able to at least use the Sigma in it until I got the Tokina lens. Deb
  13. Thanks Alex, just spoke to Peter Mooney and he thinks maybe a 20mm extension would work. Deb
  14. Hi Wetpixelers, Have recently asked if the Sigma 15mm fisheye will work with the Nauticam 4.33" mini dome. I got some replies and apparently it should. Even by the Nauticam port list it is the one to use with no extensions. Well, I have purchased it and the Sigma 15mm fisheye does not fit, the hood on the lens hits the front of the dome and will not fit in by about 5mm. Has anyone else had this problem and what have they done to fix it. I am thinking a 10mm extension but not sure if this will change anything for the proper working of the lens. Unable to get onto our local Nauticam dealer (probably because of the recent cyclone). I am heading to Byron Bay next week and wanted to try and have this usable with this dome. Thanks for any suggestions or help. Deb
