I’m looking forward to some info on this lens history. First of all the exact market introduction date…
Underwater “wet” fisheye lens (does not need a dome, can’t work properly out of water) that fits Nikonos mount cameras. I understand the lens was introduced mid-nineties
The underwater angle of coverage: 167°, and is rated to resist to 60 m depths.
Nauticam made in the 2010s an incredible adapter that let you use this beauty on a Sony A7 series camera underwater.
Nowadays Nauticam makes a special adapter to use this lens, as well other Nikonos lenses on Sony A7 series through their own camera housing.
Can you help me?
This entry is incomplete. I’m looking for good pictures, both iconic on white background (front, top, side, angled) and “real life” ones. More important I’m looking for correct information supported by facts, proof, articles. I’m also looking for manuals, flyers, catalogs, etc. I can use it as a reference or I can share it here. Credits will be given.
Images and credits
Many of the images I use here are found on the web, on auction sites, etc. I always try to track down the authors, ask permission and give them proper credits. Sometimes It is not possible, due to more than 22 years of research, so, if you recognize your pictures please contact me, I’ll be more than happy to give proper credits or take it down if you prefer.
