Hi Guys,

I'm considering upgrading my UW photo rig. I'm looking for the modern equivalent to the Oly C5050 rig that many of you love. In other words, I want to do a little better than pocket camera but I don't have a top-of-the-line camera budget (gotta spread it out across the boat & tech stuff). Ideally the housing would be rated for about 200ft. I also need advice on what sort of strobe, arms, and other lenses that I should consider.

I've heard several people mention that the C8080 series isn't as suitable for UW photo as the old C5050 but I don't remember the logic. What's the deal with this?
