  1. Hi Marc, Sorry, but I would like to sell them as a pair. Regards Torbjörn

  3. Hij, I currently use a Sony A7RII + Sigma 15mm in a Nauticam housing, and I'm now looking for a WA alternative. I was about to order the Sony 16-35mm FE f / 4 tthat is an excellent lens with existing configuration for Nauticam, but it may also be an idea to take a look at the new Zeiss Batis 18 f/2.8 that will be released in May, or what do you think? I'll probably wait for some reviews before making a choice.
  4. I have been using the A7RII with a Sigma 15mm + Metabones IV during a two week dive trip and it has worked flawlessly. I'm specially impressed by the accurate autofocus and i have rarely used the MF, even in low light conditions. Since I use the Nauticam mini glass dome, I usually stay above f9 to keep a decent corner sharpness and rather turn up the ISO or use a slow shutter speed. 15mm f16 1/15 ISO200
  5. I have the Nauticam 37303 A7 II Port Adapter + Nauticam 18810 N120 140mm optical glass fisheye port. That is Nauticams recommendation for the Sigma.
  6. I just got the Sigma and Metabones IV and upgraded to version v0.45 The autofocus is really really fast together with the A7RII, and I have not experienced any problems with the aperture as described in the Backscatter review. Manual focus using the focus gear may be an issue. I can switch to manual focus on the camera, but I can´t access the mechanical switch on the lens to release the focus motor (will it be harmed if not released?). However that has nothing todo with the Sony or Metabones and is probably a common issue for the Sigma 15mm. Will take it for a test under water behind the dome next week!
  7. According to Brian Smiths it seems like it should work with the latest firmware of the Metabones. I hope that it's fast enough, http://briansmith.com/sony-a7rii-canon-ef-smart-adapter-tests/ Sigma 15mm f/2.8 EX DG Diagonal Fisheye Lens for Canon EFMetabones: Good speed and accurate PDAF AF-C and AF-S with Wide, Center and Flexible Spot Fotodiox: Manual Focus only – but adapter provides electronic aperture control Viltrox: Manual Focus only – but adapter provides electronic aperture control
  8. Hi, It is time to go full-frame for me and after a lot of evaluations with Pros and Cons of stepping back to DSLR vs stay Mirrorless I finally ordered a Sony A7RII + Nauticam housing. I think the native Sony 28mm lens with Fisheye adapter will be a bit too bulky, so I decided to choose the well proven Sigma 15mm instead (Canon EF) + a Metabones Smart Adapter. I have read that the version IV of the adapter should work with Autofocus on the Sigma Fisheye. Is there anyone here who can confirm this and have tried this setup, or with another adapter brand?
  9. The 16-35mm FE looks nice if you want to go WA, but I still wait for a fisheye that can match the Sigma 15mm or Nikon 16mm before considering the A7RII
  10. Oskar, I have not ordered it yet. I'm still evaluating the pros and cons with this setup. I like the size and performance of the EM5 so i will probably keep it for travel even if i go for the A7RII
  11. Thanks Phil, it looks like there are some options then.
  12. Hi, I have been thinking about moving up to a mirrorless FF as a complement to my Oly EM5. Most of my photos are shot in low-light conditions and from what I have read, the A7R II seems to be a fantastic camera when it comes to high ISO performance. However the lens options for WA and Fisheys with E-mount seems to be a bil limited. Anyone here using a Sony FF and have some experience to share regarding the camera in general and choices for WA lenses?
  13. The 8mm PRO looks really interesting. Looking forward towards a review, hopefully also in combination with the OM-D EM5 MkII
