Review: Nauticam MWL-1 Conversion Lens by Jack Connick
Jack Connick presents his thoughts on the new Nauticam MWL-1 conversion lens after using it on a trip to Indonesia’s Forgotten Islands. The lens is a wet lens that is designed to convert mid focal length macro lenses into a 150° fisheye lens, primarily on full frame cameras. Hence the MWL-1 offers the intriguing possibility of shooting both macro and wide angle images on the same dive.
