  1. Chris, Andrea - reviving this old thread. It seems the MWL-1 died on the vine. I didn’t see that the few early reviews wowed anyone. Any updates on this?
  2. I didn’t have any success with the 12-50 in the 4 inch port! The ability to focus closely underwater was poor at 12mm, in my experience, negating the benefit of a semi-dome to reacquire that wider perspective. I have the flip diopter holder and used that with the 9-18mm and CMC-1 …. But only a portion of the image is useable … making a small sensor smaller. I would digitally 2X for framing at 18mm … 72mm 35mm equivalent. And, I found the WWL-1 a unwieldy beast. Not easy to maneuver but optically fine. Ultimately, I seek that lightweight, streamlined kit that is only found in Wetpixel Heaven.
  3. A 10-40mm would be an amazing thing! I missed having a lens wide enough for larger animals and the occasional seascape, with the ability to shoot tighter as needed.
  4. I have used the 9-18 quite a lot, and I don't love its performance. I had the Pana 7-14, but didn't love that either. I'm intrigued by the 50mm focal length, hoping it may be a good fish portrait/smallish critter lens.
  5. Yes, not the 9-18mm is not the best lens, but it does fit into a small port.
  6. Andrea - I’ve used the Olympus 9-18mm underwater. Similar features with collapsible storage and that lens, too, extends outward at 9mm and shortens at 18mm. — Craig
  7. Chris - I suspect you’re right in regards to the lens dimensions, and likely need reasonably large dome. I look forward to making it work.
  8. Put in my order as the announcement rolled out. I was seeking a versatile lens that also featured a more normal perspective plus reasonable close focusing capabilities. This replaces my Olympus 9-18, which performed well for me. Anyone else happy to see this lens in their kit?
  9. The S95 and that series is very good and compact. Just add strobes! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Mark, Very cool video. What drone are you flying? Curious minds want to know. Best, Craig Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Cleaning out the closet. I have a used Inon UWL-100 type 1 screw on underwater wide angle optic for sale. There are small scratches on the front element which are not apparent on images. Clean rear element. Underwater, this increases angle of view to 100.5 degrees; above water to 158.5. Rugged 5 elements in 4 groups. Use and rub marks on the body. Comes with a dual lens M67 lens holder for Ultra Lite type arms. $90 PayPal with free shipping to US residents. I’ll email images if you’re interested.
  12. Agreed. There’s no fisheye or a macro as far as I know. But I would be interested in the 20-60mm because that covers the range I typically use in m43.
  13. I haven’t looked at the S series cameras closely enough at this point. But the out-the-door costs of the bodies alone, plus housing them, is quite a lot of this is just a hobby. The lenses may hold some promise but I’d like to see users weigh in.
