Hi,

Me and a friend are heading for Anilao/Puerto Galera, the Philippines, in late November. We both like muck diving so we expect to see a lot of small stuff, but I like to take closer macro shots than before so I'm looking for macro lenses that work with the G11's WP-DC34 UW housing. It would be preferable if it's possible to mount additional macro lenses on top of the first one. A friend has that option, but with an Ikelite housing, and has taken some really cool photos with that setup.

So far I've only found these, but I thought there would be other options even for an OEM housing, but maybe I'm wrong?

I am looking at doing the same and found these:

Not only a great solution but cheaper than the other options available. I like it that I can just flick it away when I don't need them without the hassle of screwing them in and out and storing them somewhere when you are diving.

You can use this mount with 67mm lenses, like the INON UCL-165M67 (and you can stack another UCL-165M67) on top if you like. Make sure you buy a lens if you plan to remove/replace the closeup lenses during your dive.
