Re: Z-mount lens recommendations


I'm doing research (and some buying) in anticipation of getting a Z9. In particular I'm interested in knowing about good z-mount lenses for underwater user with a Z9. I've already picked up the 105s macro and a 50f1.8s. What is the wide equivalent of the 16-35 that is at least as good? I assume the 14-30, though I wish it went to 35mm.

Are there any viable mid-range zooms?

I'm shooting 16-35 with 90mm extension and 230mm dome port. 14-30 work there too?

Hi Craig,

I cannot say much to the Nikon system, but here is a link to the Nauticam port chart: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SnmaezzkwwVazzkjz0IHwvm8aNurnSbe/view

=> The 14-30 is recommended with 50mm extension and the 230 dome.

=> of interest may also be the Sony 28-60 with adapter and WACP1 (or WWL-1)...
