What kind of questions is that? - I hear you asking yourselves. Well, here's the thing. Earlier this year I, longing for tropical travel, started a thread about what lenses to bring for my Z7/Z6 on a trip to Brothers/Daedalus/Elphinstone in the Red Sea. Here it is, for reference: Now I've done some diving on the Swedish west coast, trying some things out. Among other things I have tried using the Sigma 15 mm fisheye which is MF only on Nikon Z. On the plus side, fisheye was kind of fun. On the minus side, MF means that I have close to zero chance of capturing anything moving quickly. Also, I have ordered the new Nikon 105 mm macro for Z-mount. For about the same money I could get my hands on a Nikon 8-15 mm fisheye which will work fine on my Z7 on FTZ adapter. I can afford one of them, but not both. Z macro, pluses: I'll probably get it in the end anyway. It's better than the F-mount version. Also lighter and with better weight distribution. Z macro, minuses: The F-mount macro I already own isn't bad. The Z version doesn't give me any fundamentally new capability. Nikon 8-15, pluses: Will give me good fisheye with AF, which is a new capability. Nikon 8-15, minuses: That's a lot of money for a lens to be used on FTZ adapter. The Z mount is good for wide angle lenses. Sooner or later there will be a native fisheye making the 8-15 unnecessarily cumbersome. Also, I have the 14-30 with Sea&Sea correction lens, so I'm not lacking wide-angle AF while waiting for a native Z AF fisheye. Of course it's my decision in the end, I'll have to figure out what's most important to me. Still though - what takes on this do you have?

Has anyone shaved the Sigma and shot in an Aquatica Nikon FF (or Canon) housing? I have searched and read threads on other housing brands but am unsure if other mini domes are the same size. (Zen = Aquatica= Hugyfot ? etc I think some but not all) I would prefer this lens over the Tokina and will happily cut the Sigma petals. Just easier to commit if someone had success. (The Canon 8-15 FF is great BTW behind the Aquatica mini.) Doug
