This housing allows you to use Leica lenses, Voigtländer lenses and many others with Leica M bayonett with the Subal port system. Also the great thing is that it is usable with Nikonos lenes without any ports. So you can use underwater corrected lenses in their full quality.

    Please don’t start your titles with “New Leica M camera…” in the future? I mean, unless Leica has announced the next M. Thanks 🙂

    • Ok, how is “new underwater housing for Leica m cameras”?

    Who on earth is this made for?

    The shutter speed dial say “mode”. This is not serious!

    • I am not sure how you focus. Maybe you can use it only with wide angle lenses and pre-zone focus.

        I’d assume the gear/dial thing in front. Typically, that will rotate internal wheel that will rotate the zoom ring on the lens. In this case, that will do the focusing. Usually you’ll have to attach a special ring with gears on the lens to make the connection with the housing.

    Finally, the thousands of underwater m users have something to use!

      I won’t sleep until the underwater housing for Leica S is released.

    Not stealthy enough for underwater street photography. Just wait until you come up against that shark that doesn’t want his picture taken.

    Also, the M’s distinctive clicking shutter sound — when heard underwater — is known to attract dolphins. It is their mating call, so be prepared.
