  1. You can use the tokina on MFT as well as a canon 8-15mm Equivalent focals are 8-12 for tokina and speedboster and 8-15mm zoom fisheye for the canon I use the canon and it is the most flexible zoom fisheye on any camera format when paired with a smart adapter Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. No worries it makes sense to go n120 if you want to use the glass domes otherwise it is not as relevant for me except the tokina. Shame Nauticam doesn’t make acrylic modular domes Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I am always dubious of port design Seacam makes a 105mm dome port for the 8-15mm that is advertised for wide angle macro Now the port is made of acrylic nothing special to it what makes it work is the small radius so you can get 5cm from the subject instead of 7 of a 140mm port or 12 of a larger port. As the curvature radius is small the optical quality will suffer doesn’t matter how much precision engineering you can do However when I spoke to a seacam user that has that port he believed there was something magic about the magnification of the port. Obviously this is a dome so it has no magnification this comes from coming closer and has nothing to do with the dome and how is made. After giving this person the revelation that there was nothing magic about it he got annoyed and stopped talking to me It is amazing how a brand can create beliefs more than others There is clearly nothing special about domes and ports and nothing is super or mega the thing that actually matters the most is the positioning of a dome port but try and explain that to most If I were you I would buy a Nauticam housing and be done with it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The zoom gear would not fit the opening either I think the tokina on speedboster is interesting because you get the apsc port and you can easily sell for second but at 8-12mm will still be fairly wide Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. There is no point using the 60mm with weak diopters as the lens can focus already very close. So either the cmc-1 or a +15 (in water not air) There is no benefit shooting cmc-2 or a +10 +5 as the lens on its own is already working as a +9 diopter Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. You don't understand the issue once you put the metabones you cannot no longer access the zoom gear from the housing so you need the N85-N120 port adapter or you are left with a prime lens defeating the purpose of the adapterWhen I wrote the size of the metabones i was referring to the depth is 2cm thick
  7. Full report and pictures https://interceptor121.com/2020/08/02/trip-report-baia-di-napoli-and-sorrento-peninsula/ I am organising a trip 13-20 September commitment is €400 for 10 dives with 15 liters tank with Covid-19 it will be some time until you can go somewhere exotic so I think this will be excellent for the European based UW photographer running short of option
  8. No the metabones adapter doesnt fit AF with a fisheye lens is not an issue actually nothing is really an issue at wide angle Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I speak for MFT side having tested practically everything. I agree on most of the suggestions and also with what @Architeuthis says regarding canon EF but that is expensive On the rectilinear wide angle I discourage anyone to use a 7mm lens underwater the domes are too small to contain the FOV and with shorter ports it distorts a lot The rectilinear lens of choice for MFT is the Panasonic 8-18mm as per other post here and I would say is as sharp as the WWL-1 however it does need 1 stop more down
  10. I could finally take my 8-18mm and 180mm glass dome in open water. Performance confirms my pool tests at least at f/8 the lens is very sharp not just in the centre but also in the corners. I took a few shots to mosaics in the underwater archeological sites of Baia and I think results speak for themselves. I guess due to the level of crop fo the MFT sensor and the relative small aperture combined with a decent size dome and correct extension the performance is very very good at price of shooting f/8. The improvement on the acrylic dome are marginal in the centre but significant at the edges this is mostly due to the much longer extension and not to the size of the dome that is identical. If Nauticam made acrylic domes that are modular there would be also a more affordable kit Delfino by Interceptor121, on Flickr
  11. The red coral starts at 20 however it is covered by mucillagine an algae frequently down to 30 meters. In some spots however you can get a clean patch at 20-25 meters Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
