No add-on lenses. Nikon 995 by itself in ike housing. Ikelite ss200 strobe using ttl cord. I tend to shoot everything in aperature priority with strobe set to ttl. For macro, I set the f-stop as high as it will go (10.something, I think), and for subjects further away, I open up some depending on distance ... I've been trying to get ahold of a wide adapter... sea & sea or inon but haven't gotten around to it yet. This is my second trip with the digital setup and I am very pleased with it.... just taking pics for myself and learning as I go. I love the macro on this camera and it will focus down to an inch or so... much closer than I can normally get before I can't manuever the strobe to light the subject.
Only trouble I had on this trip was the autofocus tending to lock on all the particles in the water.... haven't mastered manual focus yet... Involves holding a button and rotating a dial. Hard enough on dry land
