You have to choose your lens wisely. SOmetimes that doesn't work so well :)

But it also makes you (in my humble justification) a better photographer, since you have to concentrate on a certain type of photography during the dive.

In all my 4040/5050 dives, I probably changed lenses UW a handful of times. I am also content to watch a Mola swim by if I have my macro lens on, this was true even with the old system, I'd rather enjoy the moment than get frustrated trying to change lenses while maintaining buoyancy and following the fish and.....

As for lenses, the kit lenses (18-55 range or so) are good starts for larger macro and fish portraits. I am sure you could get by with a kit lens, 50 or 60 mm macro (depending on maker), 100 or 105 macro, and a WA (fisheye or rectilinear)

so with those lenses maybe 3.5 is being optimistic :)
