    Off the topic. Olympus just released the 25mm lens for a very reasonable price. I wonder how this lens would do for underwater?

    Would love to but there are too many Queenslanders there :wink::wink::wink::D:wink::wink::wink:

    I would love to semi retire to Bali - lot cheaper to live - but at the moment I just love diving of any kind and we shore dive every weekend in the great hope that one day the vis will be > 4m which happens at least twice a year :cool2:

    One thing though, diving in poor vis teaches you how to get a good image in any condition so when we do travel if the vis drops it isn't an issue with us.

    My partner is hopeless with money and she relies on me to be sensible (not too smart an option). Bali in a few weeks early Dec, and then another trip maybe to Philippines in April and that will be it for the next 12 months. I went up to Coffs Harbour for a dive last year. The seas were rough, the diving a bit murky and the water temp 20c, did not make me want to rush back at my time of life.

    Great shots considering what you have to deal with.

    EskilJ: I read your article about hacking the 12-50 and it made me mad! How come you have those skills, whereas I would end up with a pile of wires, glass and rubber, then go looking to buy a new lens.
