Does anyone know if it's possible to find an adapter for Nauticam CM1 lens to attach it to the newest Sony aps-c a6700 camera and use it for macro pictures on land ?
Thanks for the info !
 
You mean attach a CMC-1 directly to the camera lens? It uses 67mm threading, so in theory, you could do it with something like 16-55mm f/2.8 G, but the weight could be an issue, potentially inflicting damage on a $1400 lens. Besides, you don't really need it - on land, if you want to shoot macro without a dedicated macro lens, you can use very cheap close-up lenses or extension tubes.

Well, I meant to attach the CMC-1 to the body of the Sony a6700, without lens in between So, an adapter would be needed, but which one...
Thanks for the info though.

Uh, no, it doesn't work that way. The adapter you'd need to put between an a6700 camera body and a CMC-1 is an E-mount lens. CMC/SMC aren't built to be used separately; all they do is allow another lens to focus closer than normal. Because they're built for underwater use, they sandwich their lens elements between thick panes of glass capable of resisting water pressure; that's why they're thick, heavy and expensive. For land equivalents, look at Raynox close-up lenses, as an example.

Thanks, I'll check.
