Question this message is importantI have just bought a used nauticam housing for my nex5 and need some advice about lens and port setups. I like to shoot both macro and wideangle.

I currently have a 16mm pancake lens, but could consider bying the 30mm macro lens.

I am choosig between:

setup 1
Using my 16mm lens buying a flat port and an INON UCL - 330 Close-up Lens for 67mm Thread

setup 2
By a macro 30 mm macro lens, with suitable port and an Inon UWL-H100 wide angle wet lens.
but this is quite a lot more expensive.

Does anybody have experienc from these setups and could give advice if the work our well, I am especially interrested in knowing how focusing with setup 1 works.

message Congrats on the purchased set up, I've been using the same for the past 3 years or so. My experience has been the below works well:
Wide angle - 16mm pancake with fisheye converter in nauticam dome port
Macro - 30mm macros with a good quality diopter, I use the inon one

Not sure where your head with those two suggestions it kinda sound like you want to use the pancake for macro and the macro for wide angle.

Some people have all the lenses and options possible. Stick to two to start off with and practice as much as possible.

Best of luck!

message Well it's been some time since i made this post.

I ended up buying a regular zoom lens 18-55 with a nauticam 4" dome port (for wide angle) and have mounted a dipter holder and inon diopter in the front.

It's a good compromise where I can do both macro and wide angle during the same dive.

Then I also upgraded the housing fit a Nex 5n which made quite a big difference. Anyone want to see some of the results can take a look at my flickr account: website
