    Hi,

    I am also considering this setup. Regarding Amnon's question, anyone knows whether is it possible to use an INON wide angle? They seem to be smaller and lighter (weight wise, not necessarily price-wise) and have very good reviews. The other Olympus housings that are compatible with the PTWC-01 are also compatible with INON M67 mounting. What other factors other than the mount point might influence the compatibility.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the new info.
    Interestingly, it looks like the 10Bar has more interchangeable ports options than the Olympus housing, including port for 9-18 mm. It also have the option of either Dome or Flat port. Does that should make major difference?
    No additional information in 10Bar site as of now. Price is only slightly higher that Olympus housing (which means that Olympus price is unreasonably high as well..)

    I believe the Dome port with provide you with the full FoV of the lens you are using. So your 14mm will still be 14mm underwater,where as the flat port with cause refraction and you lose 33% of the FoV. Please someone with more knowledge then me correct me if I'm wrong.

    Got an email back from Aditech - 10Bar housing should be with them next month.
