hi Jim
Read your amazing report online on diving in Cozumel - amazing photos!
I am a paraplegic diver, and keen photographer. In the past I used a Lumix TF2 with housing and strobe I chose this because it was small, and I could swim with my arms with it hanging round my neck. This year I am off to Cozumel in February with my new OMD Em5 :) - I am just trying to sort out the best possible gear now - and wanted to pick your brains -

What ended up being your perfect setup?
If you were buying lenses to dive with what would you buy?
How much did you end up using your 8mm fisheye?
It sounds like you did not rate the 45mm highly due to autofocus problems is this right?
What is now your go to lens/ adapter combination?

Would greatly appreciate any pointers you might have!

Many thanks
