Hi all, I've been struggling with the limitations of my kitlens in the Meikon housing for my Alpha 6000. Mostly the lack of depth of selective DOF, and lack of light in certain locations (deeper waters, small caves/tunnels etc). I work exclusively with natural light with my underwater model photography. I've tried the Sigma 19mm 2.8 and was unsatisfied with it's performance (Besides that it's just 1/2 a stop of better than the kit lens), mostly due to lack of micro contrast. Now, I've noticed the Meikon lens 'port' has a set of screws on the front that, I presume, seal the glass and the rubber ring/flap inside against the housing making it watertight. I'm considering removing the screws and extending the port artificially by an other 2cm, meaning I could fit more interesting lenses (perhaps even the 24mm 1.8 from Zeiss, although that might be a bit tight). What do people think about this plan? I'm hesitant to unscrew and "just see" what's below as I depend on the housing to do sessions with clients.
