Re: 8mm f1.8 + UWH

Seems it's a fisheye - is this why it comes with an underwater case?

Re: 8mm f1.8 + UWH

I got myself en E-PM2 as a second body and it looks like no one does an underwater housing for it. Not sure I want to take my main camera (E-M5) underwater, just in case.

You could pick up a nice housing secondhand for the em5, it will be fine, Ive never had a leak and now they have vacuum detection to give you further piece of mind

Once you start though, you wont stop!
