message Thanks Alberto, I'm glad you like them. I use a Canon 5D in a Sea&Sea housing and a Sigma 12-24 mm EX lens. No, they have never attacked me but I got in their way a few times and the bill have got very close.
Cheers

Answer 
Dear Marc,
excuse my bad english, I send to you in attach an old photo shot by my master Francesco Alliata in 1947 skindiving in Sicily near Messina strict (he is still alive, 90 age !) This swordfish Xiphias gladius attack he with his sword; in 1960's another scubadiver was attacked by a swordfish and wounded in the head near the nose...he not died !
Best wishes
Alberto
