    Yes, all of them were done with the SP-350. All of them were using either the Inon UFL-165AD fisheye or the UCL-165AD close up lenses.

    I wanna upgrade my wide angle lens to that fish eye u have. But i am currently using 67mm thread for the WA lens, will that Inon fisheye lens fit onto the 67mm thread? I have asked this questions to Inon sellers but none of them had replied to me whether it could be done or not.

    Very nice pics Eddy!

    There seems to be a lot of INON lens users here. It must be a good lens.
    The lenses do not appear to be threaded for a 46-52-67mm UW housing; do you have to purchase the AD base for the housing?

    Thanks,

    JT

    You can use the UWL-100 67mmm thread:

    INON UWL-100 Achromat Wide Conversion Lens (Type 2) for 67mm Thread #456212143159

    which goes with the INON Dome Lens Unit for UWL-100

    INON Dome Lens Unit for UWL-100 #456212143165

    I have not used those myself, but from the Inon catalog you can go threaded or AD.
    I'm not an Inon rep btw :wink:

    Thanks. As mentioned above, you can go threaded or AD. I recommend AD in an underwater environment. Trying to screw/unscrew a threaded lens can cause you to miss an opportunity and even make you drop the lens. Inon makes AD mounts for a variety of underwater housings. My AD mount cost about $60:

    Thanks for the info. divervision.com has everything that I want but:

    Can someone tell me if there is a big difference between the INON 100 and the 105 lens?

    I've got the SP350 and oly housing as well. Went with the AD mount and recently picked up the UWL-105 which, unfortunately, I've only tested above water and in the pool. Had planned to use it on our Jamaica trip but got washed out by the hurricane in November. So, we'll see how it performs in a couple upcoming trips to Bonne Terre, Florida and Roatan.

    The AD mount is very easy to use and I would certainly NOT want to mess with screwing on and off lenses under water. It's tough enough to get the lens back onto the holder mount on the strobe arm.
