    Yes this is a good idea and also if you get to use a wide angle wet lens , the cord wont be in the way
    I use it and I am very happy with it

    No problem with light leakage and back-scatter with the fiber optic adapter that comes with the housing.

    However, as Patrick said, if you plan to use a wide angle wet lens, the cords are in the way when using the original adapter.

    It looks like the replacement is screwed on and not easily removed. No way to remove quickly and use the camera's flash. Less likely to lose.

    It's cheap enough to have and carry as backup.

    Go for it.
