    Nauticam had a booth at BTS and a rep confirmed that they are working on a housing for the XZ-1. No specifics though.

    Nauticam was showing a new housing for the Panasonic GH-2 at the London show and conformation of the on going designs for the Olympus XZ-1 and E-PL2. These new housings were announced by Edward Lai owner of Nauticam.

    Regarding the above chat about wide angle lenses, Olympus 9-18, Panasonic 7-14 both rectilinear and the Pany 8m fisheye are all supported by ZEN Underwater ports for the Olympus PT-ELP1/2 housings. The focus chart in the below link shows the difference in using the flat port v. a dome port with the 9-18. I have used all of these lenses with the ZEN ports and they all retain the above water AOV and can be focused quite close.

    Welcome to zenunderwater.com!

    I would look to the Nauticam housing for the NEZ-5 it you want to get an idea of the price point for the new E-PL2 housing and expect the ZX-1 to be a bit below that.
