    please help me, exactly what port base/macro port base/port should
    i choose, if i want to use the following lens with sea&sea RDX600D
    housing:
    Please give also the exact sea&sea part numbers (all of them that is
    needed for one lens)
    - ef-s 60mm macro (autofocus only)
    - ef 100mm macro is usm (autofocus only)
    - tokina 10-17
    (different dealers gave me different combinations)

    -The recent system chart (2011.mar.) does not contain rdx600D
    -In the latest sea&sea news I see a new DX macro port 52 (30111) for 60mm macro, but did not find it, no dealer, no price yet

    If there are alternatives, please give both/all, possibly with pros/cons
    i.g.as far as I know the macro port 111 will be discontinued, it is
    cheaper, but i can not put a m67 thread wet diopter to it. (it would be good if it would not cost too much.)

    Thanks for advance


    Thanks for advance

    HI-
    The system charts here: http://www.seaandsea.jp/file_master/systemchart/000003_1.pdf are the same for the RDX-600D housing.
    For the 60mm, it is recommended to use: #30108 port base s + #56241 macro port 52
    100mm we recommend: #30109 Port base L + 56201 macro port base + #30112 (chart has typo of #30102) Macro port S II
    Tokina 10-17: zoom gear #31114, #30109 port base L + either 1) #56601 compact dome or 2) #30104 Optical dome

    Hi,
    Thank you for the answere, I have another questions:
    - for the 100mm: why is the recommended: #30109 Port base L + 56201 macro port base + #30112 (chart has typo of #30102) Macro port S II
    better, than the #30108 port base s + #56261 macro port 111 combination (also on the chart)? (much expensive, one more o ring)

    - for tokina10-17: why is the #30109 port base L + #56601 compact dome better, than the
    #30108 port base s + #46100 CX compact dome

    Thanks

    Hi-
    In the USA (which admins this forum) the Macro Port 111 is discontinued as well as the CX dome port. If the products are available in your region, then you can certainly choose to go with any of the listed combinations.

    I'm using the standard Port for the 60 mm macro and it works perfectly.
    My setup is the rdx550
    Good luck with the uw shooting.
