    Posted this in the U/W photo general section, trying here as well.

    Asking this on behalf of a friend, I haven't jumped ship !

    Is there a port and zoom ring combo available for this lens (Sigma 17-70) to use with the S&S RDX housing for the Canon 500D? Looked on the S&S site, couldn't see anything.

    While I'm here, I have suggested he start of with the Canon 60mm macro, then the Sigma 17-70 as an all rounder and possibly looking at the Tokina 10-17 at a later stage. I assume the latter two will require a dome port, is there a "one dome fits all" solution?

    Thanks

    Hi Andy-
    We'd suggest going for the 10-17 straight off as it is a great u/w and land lens. But to answer your questions, the 17-70 would use the 30104 Optical Dome port, RDX Port Base L 30109 and the 56350 zoom gear. The 10-17 will also be compatible and would require the 31114 zoom gear.

    Many thanks for the great info !!!!

    Would you please consider including the info on the Sigma 17-70 on a system chart for the 500D ?

    Hello,
    Japan does not list the Sigma 17-70mm lens in th System Charts, requests have been made. However, we have found several users in the U.S. using the 56350 gear with the Sigma 17-70mm lens. The 56350 is compatible with all SEA&SEA DX housings for Nikon. It is also suggested to use the Fisheye Dome Port (56401).

    Just to clarify - is it the Fisheye Dome Port (56401) or the 30104 Optical Dome port for the 17-70?

    Hi there,
    I use the 31114 also for the 17-70! Just some rounds of tape on the lens - and it works.
    For the DX-D80 I use the optical dome with SX- and the 40-Extension.
    So now i have a 10-17 and no need for extra equipment :D
    Old thread on wetpixel: Sigma 17-70 (non HSM) - Wetpixel :: Underwater Photography Forums
    I can give a link for first Results with the 17-70 if needed.
    Greetings
    Tom

    Remember there are several Versions of the Sigma 17-70!
    I use the 17-70 without HSM!
    The HSM-Version doesn't work with the 31114.

    This info is outdated. #56350 gear does not fit the current Sigma 17-70 lenses with HSM motors.

    Does anyone know what size will fit? It has a 78mm diameter.

    Thanks,
    jack
