  1. I've got to add the Nikon AF-S 16-85mm f3.5-5.6 G ED VR lens to the pool for your consideration. Since you'll likely be using strobes, the aperture range isn't a bad thing. I've had some very nice wide angle and close-up pictures come out shooting on the reefs around Roatan with an Ike housing and 8" dome port & my D90. Nice thing about the 16-85 is that it's also a great walk about lens. Hard to find one for around $300 though.
  2. Greetings from the Emerald Seas of British Columbia. After a long and loving relationship with my Oly 5050 and Oly PT-015 housing, I've taken the plunge and decided it is time to introduce my Nikon D90 to a few of the local critters. I'm starting from scratch with DSLRs underwater, but have jumped in with both feet and have ordered an Ike housing, 2x Ike DS-51 strobes, the 8" dome and the right port to match the 16-85mm lens that will be behind the dome. I really enjoy topside DSLR photography, so I'm hoping to combine a couple of my passions. Wish me luck. I'm off to Roatan (CoCo View) for a week, so I'll have lots of opportunity to practice with the new gear in shallow clear water. Hopefully one or two pictures are worthy of posting here. Fortunately there's a lot of similarity between using the 5050 on manual and a DSLR on manual (in terms of concepts and desired outcomes), so the photography learning curve isn't too steep. The new gear curve however, that's another story. Cheers, Craig.
