  1. I am selling these for deceased friends estate. These where state of the art lens back in the manual focus days. I dove with this guy for 35 years and know these lens well.He took good care of his gear.

    The 15mm is known for no distortion as the 1.4 35mm is for low light gathering.Both great lens-not auto focus 

    I have them up on eBay now but will gladly forgo those fees if any wet pixel folks are interested just make a reasonable offer

    send a Pm if interested 

    heres the listings

    Older Nikon Lens go well on eBay and the 35mm already has a bid-they end next Sunday eve-I will only ship to USA address via USPS

  2. Hello for some reason after  over15 years on the site I need to introduce myself as they want to know me better.

    I'm a old timer who stared with film in 1983-was slow to switch to digital in 2009

    Started with a cheap point and shoot then an plexiglass Ikelite in 84-became an Aquatic Dealer in 85 and sold and shot the Nikon F3s with motor drive  until the early 2000s and then switched out to subal  housings with Nikon F5s with motor drives-I loved this setup with velvia film. Sold calendar photos and wrote few pieces until digital put the bite on all photo sales.Shot a d300s for along time.

    Moved up a few years ago to subal custom housing and Nikon D800. most likely my last housing . Subal is going away slowly and I'm happy where I'm at these days .

    Lets see I'm a certified tank inspector and have two compressors at home-a few boats as well . I'm not diving as much as I used to as I get closer to 70 but still do a dry suit beach diving yearly in Puget sound for photos .

    Places I have been are shark cage diving 2005 Mexico, Caribbean in the 80s, Truk logon 3 trips 80's 90s ,Papua New Guinea to Bali 30 day boat trip -2005-hawaii -70's 80's. Costa rica 1986 

    Solomon's twice,Queen Charlottes Canada 90s-Pacific coast -Monterey -channel Islands-all of them 80-90s-Oregon Puget sound 30 years now. Northern California (my home)

    I am sure I have missed a few as well.

    Still like cold water almost as much as warm water-I also have done light commercial diving (water wells and salvage). 

    Diving is a side thing as my main business for 50 years now is making and selling fictional pottery for the home. (liscomhillpottery.com)

    Thanks

  3. This is on eBay soon as well

    asking 149$-275$-make me an offer

    shipping will be extra

    My friend passed and had this unused in his estate .

    Looks New but I listed it as used as I do not know for sure if its ever be dove. Housing made by Aqua Vision in Canada fits a nikon F3 camera with motor drive (not included). If it is used I can not see it. There is some super minor corrosion in some outer screw thread holes. Not in original box

    Housing looks like new old stock recently found at an estate sale. The housing has two E/O strobe connectors and comes with a spare as well . The dome port appears new and the focus knob is a custom extra large one
    The gland nuts will need silicone lube before using and are easy to take apart and lube.
    Dome is screw mount. This also comes with a USED flat port setup as well . Both ports have neoprene covers
    With any underwater camera housing test dive it without a camera first.
    Original instruction booklet included as is the new warranty card yet to be filled out-That will shock Aqua Vision getting this sent in.
    I have another identical housing for sale now that is used for less $$. also on wet pixel Check that out as well

  4. Good stuff-thansk for sharing-makes me want to be there NOW.

    I dive keystone every early August past 27 years myself. Been out to the San Juans a few times as well over those August trips on boat trips. I do a show every August(1st weekend)  and spend the rest of week diving with a camera. before returned to Nor-cal.I have seen some shnages over all that time as well.
