Which lens is best and why?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I have read in the past that one of these lenses is better underwater than the other. I can't remember which one and what the reasons were that it is better. Can anyone give me some ideas before I end up getting the wrong one.

 

Thanks for your help.

Both lenses are great underwater, but probably the main factor in favor of the 16-35 is the fact that it can be used without a dioptre. It is also preferable to use a larger dome like the Zen 230 rather than the smaller 8" domes. Alex Mustard has commented to this effect in his posts and I agree.

Hi Loftus,

 

Thanks for this, I knew there was a reason one was better. I have the nauticam 8.5" dome. This should be O.K with this lens???
