    Hi team,

    Is this lens compatible with the Ikelite LX10 housing (which as I understand has a slightly different 67mm thread that requires a particular base ring on the larger AOI/Fantasea UWL-09).

    If so, is it only the 52-67mm step ring that is required and what is the required zoom in to eliminate vignetting using this?

    Is that step ring supplied with the lens if requested for that housing?

    Is the lens (and any step ring) secure on the Ikelite housing with the shallower wet lens thread?

    Also, can you use full zoom capability during dive?

    Is the lens compatible with any quick release adaptor?

    Many thanks
    Alex
