What kind of underwater use are you thinking of? I use a Ewa-Marine bag for my 1dx with a flash. It works fine in swimming pools and for shallow water diving, but I wouldn't do any surf photography with it.

just for swimming pools. no deep diving stuff, max depth maybe 8-10ft?

i am planning a maternity underwater photo shoot in a few months

Just remember that your flash transmitters won't work well underwater. If you want to use flash you'll have to be at or very near (think a foot) the surface, otherwise the water kills the signal.

looks quality. Gunna see if they sell that here in the uk or something similar.

So one of these(although none for a9/a7r3 model) is overkill?

BTW, the new UWA UBX 100 has a built in glove in the bottom to allow you to control a zoom lens. I haven't tried it so I don't know how well it works. I usually use gaffers tape to lock the zoom on my lens, and I set AF back to the shutter button, set the iso to auto and rock on.

That's got to be the cheapest solid dive housing I've ever seen (price wise). Here in the U.S. all the solid dive houses I've seen start at $1000 for the housing and lens sleeve. I may have to look into that unit.

Starting to make plans to go back to Roan Mountain later this year...can't wait, it never gets old...one from the archives from 2017's trip. Maybe this year I can meet up with Robert.

I'm feeling the gas, but don't have any cheddar to feed it. :\ I also don't have a clean direction of what I want. A few ideas I have kicked around are the 24-70 GM, 24-105 G, or the Loxia 21mm. I know it's quite the range. I'm finding I prefer to stay light and small with mirrorless, but it sure would be nice to have a 24-105 travel lens. On my last trip I did 95% of the trip with the 5D4 with the 24-105 on it and the A7Rii with the 35 ZA. This summer we may be going to Alaska on a cruise, so I'm also considering that. Last time I rented the Canon 100-400 II. Maybe this time I'll rent the Sony 100-400 GM.

"Corner Office"

Loxia 85

Note: This was more than 50% crop from a larger image. I couldn't get the verticals corrected in the original so I went with this abstract type image.

Loving the textures and tones in this shot Alfredo. It looks awesome.

As an experiment, I think I was able to straighten your cropped image above by correcting both verticals and horizontals.
