I have the olympus tough 8010 compact camera and the PT 048 HOUSING. Can anyone suggest a decent wide angle lens that would work with this housing? i have been told there would be too much vignetting with the inon wide angle lens on this housing.

thanks

thanks for that scott

i contacted reef photo and they said the fisheye fix uwl-04 will work with no vignetting and 150 degrees. what i do wonder is if i attached it to my housing would it interfere with my fibre optic cable. my fibre optic cable for strobe attachs at front of housing window

thanks, mark
