  1. Looking for a CMC-1 in excellent condition. Message me if you have one that youre willing to part with. Thanks!
  2. I have the buoyancy collar for the WWL as well. I was thinking of using float arms though since the collar makes the WWL a HUGE lens. Does it get in the way when using the bayonet mount?
  3. Ok. So after speaking with someone at Optical Ocean Sales I was told that the WWL on the AOI port might not work out so great as it might vignette a bit. While I was doing some research on the subject I ran across this custom port designed for the 14-42EZ and PEN housings. It was specifically designed to be used with the WWL so I think this might do the trick. Looks like I might have a decent option for a versatile little rig with the WWL and CMC! https://www.uwcamerastore.com/gl/poort-voor-olympus-pen-14-42-ez-pancake-nauticam-wwl-1 Anyone try their ports before?
  4. The black friday deal for the Oly OM-D EM-5 mkII with 14-42 and PT-EP13 housing for $1299 was too good to pass up. I currently use an old Oly E-PM1 with the 60mm macro and the 14-42 and wanted to upgrade a bit. I had purchased a used Nauticam WWL with the bayonet mount with the intention of getting a camera to pair up with it and the CMC to get a versatile kit that can shoot wides and macro on the same dive. I do realize that the Oly port isn't threaded. What I was planning on doing is buying either the AOI FLP04 flat port to use with the 14-42EZ or the 12-50 with the FLP02 and the WWL and CMC. I was reading JackConnick's blog post about the Oly EPL-7 and the WWL and CMC is part of what has me thinking that I might be able to do this on a bit of a tighter budget than going out and dropping several thousand on a Nauticam housing. Since the Oly bundle was only $1299. including the camera, 14-42 II, zoom gear, and housing, my cash outlay is a lot less since I already own the WWL and bayonet mounting system. So, I was wondering if there might be an advantage to using the 14-42EZ over the 12-50 with the vignetting issues it supposedly has with the WWL. Is there much of a difference in image quality between the two optics or is it negligible? Anyone try this or think it might work?
  5. This thread is really interesting to me since I'm considering buying the Oly EM5 mkII bundle with the Oly housing to use with a WWL. I do realize that the Oly port isn't threaded.

  6. Thanks for the reply. I did get the M67 to bayonet converter so hopefully it'll work out. Eventually, I'll be getting an a6500 with Nauticam housing for this but wanted to start a little slower than a $3K rig.
  7. Has anyone here tried mounting a Nauticam WWL-1 on a Meikon a6000 housing to use with the 16-50 lens? The lens is one of the recommended lenses to be used with the a6000/a6300 and the WWL-1. It seems odd to be putting such an expensive wet lens on a cheapo Meikon housing but I'm trying to take baby steps to get where I want to be. I've been shooting on an old Oly E-PM1 rig and soon found out that I've outgrown it. I'm a photographer/videographer by trade and own several high end cameras (A7rII, A7s, 5D3, GH3, C100) for my work, but wanted to start slowly with my underwater rig to make sure that it's something that I'd like enough to continue. I've found that while the E-PM1 was nice to learn on, I'm missing the responsiveness, AF, and quality of files of my higher end cameras. This leads me to the a6000 and the WWL-1. Eventually, I'd like a Nauticam a6500 w/16-50 to be used with the WWL-1 and a CMC. I have a pair of Sea & Sea 110a strobes that I'll be using with the a6000. In the meantime, I've found an inexpensive a6000 with a Meikon housing and 16-50 lens that might be a good stepping stone to the a6500 w/Nauticam housing. Since the front of the Meikon port has a 67mm thread, would the WWL-1 mount and work with the a6000 & 16-50 combo the same as it would on a Nauticam housing?
  8. If you've got a taker for the strobes and for the monitor and monitor housing, I might be interested in the Nauticam housing for the 5D3 and the Zen dome. If you decide to split it up please let me know how much that portion would be. Thanks!
  9. Where are you located? I might be interested in a pair. How much for 2 of em?
  10. Would you sell just the housing and dome? If so, for how much? Let me know. Thanks.
