  1. Hi I thinking of getting a domeport for wide angle work and i am wondering whether it makes sense to use diopters/filters behind a Dome? What kind of red filters do use for shooting in natural light with a Dome? i have a 67mm "wet" filters and diopters but dont know if all that makes sense behing a domeport? Shall i screw the "wet" filters directly on the lens using stepup rings, lens diameter is smaller then 67mm. Using diopters behind a dome possible or sometimes necessary? if yes, when makes it sense and will i loose a lot of optical quality when using diopters? The lenses i gonna use have a relatively small minimum focus distance of 0.25m / 0.82ft and the other of 0.20m /0.66ft Thank you for your much appreciated answers and help best orlando
  2. Hi I am wondering if somebody uses the Panasonic/Leica 45mm Macro in the Olympus Housing for the E-PL1/E-PL-2 (PT-EP01 or PT-EP03) with standard flat port. Does this lens suits in the housing/port and work properly or do you recommend to buy an Athena Macro Port for it? I've read somewhere that the distance between lens and Port Glas is a bit too wide and that it could cause e.g. misfocussing on the port glas. Many thanx for hints. best regards orlando
