I'm told he is a male and is 2 1/2 years old and about 3mtr, his parents have moved south into another bay somewhere near the Sudan boarder. His "Buddies" the fish(don't know what they are called) are amazing, he goes to the surface to breath and they seem to know exactly where he is going to carry on feeding and meet him there. He is the largest living vacuum cleaner I've ever seen . We saw another Dugong in Marsa Mubarak, he or she is very shy, only got two pics of it as it flew by (they are very fast when on the move).
About the Tokina, I cant say I'm an expert I've only done 100 dives the last thirty with a camera, but for me personally it was a good buy. I use it in a Ikelite 6" Port but an 8" I imagine would be better, its very fast in focusing also you can get close, so close I almost scratched my Dome. Its a fisheye and with one strobe you could have problems lighting a scene if you forget to position the strobe exactly, otherwise one strobe works like a spot light in the back or foreground. There were some reflections of the focusing gear in some of my pictures but then again its a fisheye and see's everything (just blacken everything and its solved). Its a very good piece of glass, Thats about it.
eg. Forgot to position strobe and litup the background only :glare:
