Olympus Zoom Gear

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here had any dealings with Deepshots

I’m chasing zoom gears for my 9-18 and 12-40 Olympus lenses in my Nauticam housing

The gears available from Deepshots are considerably cheaper than the original Nauticam ones that I can buy in Oz I just want to make sure they’re up to the job

Also I didn’t realise til today that the Nauticam gears are interchangeable with the Olympus ones I suspected that the gearing etc was different but not so

Thanks

I did have a zoom gear from deep shots for one of my lenses as nauticam didn’t do it at the time. Quality is fairly good. Only irritation was that you had to use a baby Allen key to tighten the zoom gear to the lens unlike the nauticam ones.

A+ for deepshots gears and service, I got mines with my name printed on them!

As for DeepShots, I got the budget 12-50 gear from them (no way to engage macro) and like it.

 

Olympus/Nauticam interchangeability: I thought the nautical gears could be used in Olympus housing but maybe not vice versa. The Olympus gears have quite thick gears along the axis of the lens. If they are interchangeable why not just get the Olympus 9-18, it's super cheap.
