Thanks, Chris for your input.

Yes, I noticed on the equipment page of your web site that you had recently started using a DSLR after going through a couple of 'prosumer' systems. The thing that attracts me most to something like the Oly C50560 is the fact that you don't need multiple lenses. You can shoot everything from macro to 78deg wide (with the dome port) on the same dive. If one were to go the DSLR route for UW photography, what would you recommend as a minimum selection of lenses? Do the inexpensive screw-on close-up lens kits work for UW macro photography?

I certainly understand the shutter lag problem. I have an extensive photo collection that I could call "Fish Tails of the Kelp Forest". I'm getting better though, at compensating for the slow shutter response - I try to 'lead' the moving subject, much like I had to do in my old duck hunting days.
