this guy is only the size of a thumb...the lens focus very fast. i will post some shots of the 12-50mm and the Pana 45mm Macro later. a bit disappointed with the 45mm which worked very well with my E-PL1 with a PT-EP01 casing but not this camera...

Nice collection from Lembeh you have. I am sure you have a lot more. The OMD-EM5 look impressive. Give us more comment on the camera n your rig set up.

my new rig! one day i must disassemble the mechanism that wraps around the 12-50mm lens, its a work of precision and artistry--the one on the right? just like ironman's suit. i cannot believe they spent so much time just to get the Macro and the WA of this 250 dollar lens to work.

WA is acceptable for recreation diving, but the Macro is serious stuff! and slap on a Subsee +10..even pimples on a frogfish will be visible.

Nauticam gives shooting with ease a new meaning (not like shooting in the gent's lay. not that meaning) you have absolute certainty that the casing and the ports closed securely. they allowed the LCD display to slide a bit to enable clear viewing/focusing, brilliant.

you see the hole to the right of the hot-shoe? its meant for a separate video light but i am going to put a T handle in it. for boatman to carry. the handles have been known to come off the tray for this set-up. there is a number of report that the main dial for selecting shutter speed does come off after frequent use, i hope i am not one of those.

and they give a leak alarm as well to give you further confidence. but i must add that water stains seem to cling to the optical glass more than my old Olympus casing. so need to wipe immed after rinsing do not leave in the rinse tub..same for any wet lens! now i carry a chamois and one lint free cloth for this purpose.

i use to wear a torch on my head at night but now all the shooting buttons are at finger-tips, so i do not use the torch any more.

the camera itself is very fast. even with a wet lens outside the casing. i used a step-up ring to accomodate the Subsee +10.

now saving money to buy WA ports and a 12mm lens. funny how money seem to disappear once you start photography.

btw, the lens attached to the OMD is actually a Pana 45mm macro with a Raynox 250. yes it fits nicely in the port in the picture. but somehow the autofocus was hunting.

it worked well for my E-PL1 in an Olym housing though.

hmm anybody wants to buy?
