    I wish that like how there is a wet wide angle lens for the Dx2g that Sea and Sea could make a wet macro lens as well for it.

    The 2G focuses down to .5cm. I have the Sea&Sea 125 close up lens (with adapter) that I can put on and remove during the course of a dive.

    Does this allow for better macro?

    My experience with the Sea&Sea 125 close-up lens and the DX-1G is that it hardly makes a difference for macro. I consider the purchase a waist of money. I did several tests with it and finally stopped using it. If someone has a better experience I would gladly hear because then I am doing something wrong and is not the lens to blame.

    I've had great luck with mine. I love the fact that it's so easy to take off and store underwater if I need to.

    Did it help you with Marco Cardog? Any shots using this that I could see?

    Ron, I was looking at those pics of yours and I see some noise in the image. It might be jpeg compression, but it almost looks like the camera was set on a higher ISO than needed. My own 2G experience is quite limited too, though.
