I use an Olympus OMD 1 MK2 with Nauticam housing and liking the Nauticam WWL-1 best of all. Using much more than my fisheye/dome set up.

Thanks for this answer, I\'m also interested in whether this is good advice http://fixthephoto.com/tech-tips/best-lens-for-real-estate-photography.html ?

Lina: Not so easy answer. Yes most of the ports would work, depending on the lens you put inside. You need to check it the focus in infinity without additional CU lens. The wet lens is another story: most need a layer of water between both lens, others were designed to really work UW. Not much better with a smaller, water resistant camera, not really UW, much smaller and versatile? Best would be to rent the equipment and try, depending on where you are....

I´m just beginning to read about this wet lenses or ports. Would you say they are intended for just shooting underwater? Will the wide angle effect work to shoot over the water (surfing) if you have that layer of water in between the glasses? Thanks!

I\'m not really great in underwater photography, but I can recommend you FixThePhoto website, there are a lot of cool tips and I saw an article about lenses there, hope it\'ll help you)
Thanks Mary... I will have a look for sure :)
Wet Lens are a Fashion now, but perhaps also a curse! Many photographers thing they are THE solution for getting close to the subjects, they are NOT!
Wet lens have been around since I started UW Photography back in 1987, they were very popular then, particularly the Sea & Sea Wide Angle Adapters for the Nikonos V, etc. I\'ve used a lot of them, the results were just horrible!
Nowadays, there are some improvements, but if you really want to get close, do it the PROFESSIONAL way with Extension Rings, TC\'s, etc. Anything else, is just commercial hype...
you are right Joao... the only problem with extension rings is that once you put them on you\'re done, whereas wet lenses offer you a little flexibility .....
Of course, Dear Marino! No flexibility! Unless you use a zoom lens... yet another story.... I personally prefer to use 2 cameras, each with a different lens/setup. And 1 DSLR and the other Film!
