I am doing research to finsd out what kind of macro lenses i should use. I plan on stacking them. I am leanint towards the inon 165 as i think the difference is a shorter focal length allowing me to get closer to my subject. I am shooting with a canon g10 in an ikelite housing.

Does anyone have any practical experience with these ir any advice for me

It is my understanding that the UCL165 equals two UCL330.

The focal length of the UCL330 is 330mm and the FL of the UCL165 is 165mm.

Go to page 25 in the Inon Lens PDF at link below after you download it:

That's my understanding as well. 1x 165 = 2x 330's.

Personally, I stack two UCL-165AD lenses, and can't imagine having to stack four to get the same magnification! One of these days I want to pick up a third, just for fun... I know you can stack three. I can't imagine how tiny the DOF is going to be with a triple-stack, though!
