Since 2007 I am using an Olympus E330 DSLR with Ikelite DS160 and DS161 strobes. Underwater I use the 50mm Macro , 11-22 mm wide angle and 12-60mm most of the time. I made about 80-100 dives a year, most of them in the Netherlands. See my homepage for almost weekly new pics, most taken in water with low visibilty. (Oosterschelde and Grevelingen in The Netherlands)
