I am in the process of buying a carmera for UW. I have been going back and forth between the sony NEX-5 model with 18-55mm lens and the pansonic lumix GH2 along with LUMIX G VARIO 7-14mm/F4.0 ASPH lens (and 2 X SOLA1200). Should I go for any other lens ? I will video a lot, perhaps more than photo.
For housing it´s the nauticam I guess. Will film and photo most in tropical water.
All suggestions or comments are highly appreciated.
cheers,

I have a NEX and it is quite nice in the Nauticam housing but if I were going to shoot video with it, I would definitely get the 16 mm pancake lens and the dome port for it. The Panasonic GH2 has access to many more lenses than the Nex so for all around versatility it can't be beat but it is way bigger and heavier and expensiver.
