  1. Looking for: ZEN DP-100-EP or Precision Olympus Dome for 8mm Fisheye or Inon EP-01 dome port It’s for the 8mm Panasonic rather than Olympus 8mm pro at the moment. UK based so price with shipping and insurance to the U.K. please. I couldn’t edit or delete my other wanted post...
  2. EDIT - now got the macro set up and diopter. Just looking for the fisheye ZEN or Precision Dome...
  3. Thanks for the response - the 60mm works fine with The EPL1 in its housing with that port (as that used to be my set up! But if I took that port and put it on the EPL7 housing...is the port compatible? It should be but knowing Olympus it might not be!
  4. I have an Olympus E-PL7 housing PT-EP 12 with the standard port as well as a semi-dome port. The standard port is too short to fit the 60mm macro lens (way to go on design Olympus!). However, I do also have in storage an E-PL1 and PT-EP01 housing with the standard port that came with that. Given that the 60mm was compatible with that housing and port, if I dig it out of storage and put the port from that housing onto the PT-EP 12, is there any reason why it wouldn't fit or work with the 60mm? I don't want to trek down to where it is in storage if I've missed something and it won't work! Plus, if I use the old PT-EP 01 port, whats the best system for adding an additional wet diopter. I seem to remember Olympus provided some noddy looking clip on macro ring that I never used and the later housings have a 67mm thread but the older ones don't. Any particular flip systems or Olympus compatible solutions? Otherwise, it means looking for a Zen FP-100 macro port to fit the PT-EP12 and the extension ring which is a costly solution. Thanks for any help!
  5. Looking for the following: Zen FP-100-EP macro port Zen ER-EP-25 extension ring ZEN DP-100-EP or Precision Olympus Dome for 8mm Fisheye Anyone looking to sell any of this that they don't use any more? Please let me know with prices and postage to UK. Would also be interested in any wet diopters that would be usable with this and the Oly 60mm macro lens.
  6. Thanks Wapiti - I had suspected that might be the case due to the complete lack of any Pen UW photographers discussing using this lens! 12-50mm purchased secondhand and I might pick up a 9-18mm to try if one comes along at a bargain price.
  7. Thanks bear35. - that's really helpful. do you know if the 12-40 will fit in that dome? Or rather what port do you use as I can't seem to find one that the 12-40 pro fits in for the PT-EP12
  8. Thanks for the response. I dive in the Red Sea as my other half is a PADI MI living out there. So it ranges from macro focused dives on the shallow reefs to going out for blue water big wall drift dives where we get oceanic white tips and stuff like that - little time for macro in those currents and conditions! So I should be able to on a dive by dive basis work out whether a 9-18mm or 60mm is best. A wet diopter isn't going to be possible with my current set up as the flat port with the Pt-EP12 won't fit the 60mm, hence buying the semi dome to fit everything.
  9. Thanks Craig - so with a 9-18mm and 60mm I should be ok without a more general lens in between?
  10. Olympus E-PL7 with PT-EP12 housing and AOI semi dome DLP-04 I already own the Olympus 60mm macro and have the 14-42mm from an old E-PL1 system with zoom gear (not tried this with the new port and housing yet - will it work ok?). I just sold my 14-42mm EZ that came with the E-PL7 as it won't fit in the new port and the port it goes with won't fit the 60mm... So...do I get: - 12-50mm EZ plus the cheaper zoom gear (that doesn't switch to macro) - 14-42mm II that works with this port (the older lens isn't listed as compatible...??) - 9-18mm (does my old zoom gear work with this?) I would like to have a lens for general shots and to try some WA - mostly for wreck dives/big pelegics and general dives where I know I won't have the time to concentrate on the kind of shots that would take setting up with the 60mm lens. So all I have to do is choose whether it's going to be a "little stuff" no rush dive or a "big stuff / general stuff" dive if that makes sense? Am I right that the 12-40 pro lens doesn't fit this dome? Kind of out of my budget anyway unless I find a second hand bargain but want to know if it's ruled out. Any other options I should consider?
  11. Yep also had a pm from taylorsink01 - sounded pretty suspicious given they only registered a day before and the wording they used...
  12. Thanks - I was hoping you might be in the UK. Bit too far for me to pay that kind of cash I'm afraid unless it was with a long established member of the forum with lots of trades behind them.
  13. How much were you wanting: A) for just the housing and standard port B) for the housing, standard port and dome port? And where abouts are you in the world?
