  1. Hey, I am selling my Nikon AF Micro-Nikkor 200mm f/4D IF-ED Lens with the tripod collar professionally removed for use in a underwater housing. This is the highest quality lens I have ever used. Period. Possibly the best macro lens made. I am selling it as I just don't have the opportunity to use it enough. I need to make room in my bag for some new gear. The lens' tripod collar has been professionally removed for use in a underwater housing. I have the original tripod collar and will include it. If you wish, the collar can be reattached, but I would recommend shipping it to Nikon for this. The glass is CLEAN! I cannot find a fault in the optics. NO discernable scratches, dust, fungus, etc. There are two small cosmetic scratches on the exterior metal body. See pictures below. I would rate this lens 9.5/10. Includes: Lens, Metal Lens Hood (Nikon HN-30), Front and Rear Caps, Original Tripod Collar, and Original Instruction Manual. Asking $1000 + Paypal + Shipping. Please feel free to email me for more details or images: gregjaggearsphoto@gmail.com Thanks!
  2. Wow, Thank you all for your responses! I can tell a lot of this just comes with a lot of dive experience. Time to get my feet (and my lens) wet. I think I will start out getting a housing for the D800 + 105mm. That appears to be the most versatile combination of the bunch.
  3. Hey! I'm a pretty experienced photographer on land looking to explore the other 71% of our Blue planet. From reading WP, most gravitate towards either ultrawide (weitwinkel) angle or macro photography. Im focusing on Macro. Specifically, what is the optimal focal length for most macro opportunities underwater? Longer focal lengths allow for more realistic working distance with your skittish subjects, yet too much distance in even the clearest water can degrade sharpness. Asking those with experience to please float your opinions. Im blessed with a good amount of gear to play with, but can only afford to acquire a housing for one camera/lens combo at this time.

  4. Hey, I'm Greg. I grew up on the water in the Gulf Coast of Florida, and during college had the opportunity to travel the world taking landscape photos. I'm looking forward to diving in to underwater photography and bringing some of my new found photo skills back home to the gulf.
