Nikonos RS R-UW AF 13mm f2.8 lens – adaptation to modern digital Nikon cameras in a Seacam housing and review

May 2014

The underwater Nikonos RS R-UW AF 13mm f2.8 Fisheye lens was, in the days of film cameras, known as the concept of optical excellence in underwater wide-angle photography. Today, in the era of modern digital cameras, no one considers to use the out-dated film Nikonos RS any more. Nikon, unfortunately, shows absolutely no interest in producing a digital version of the once famous Nikonos RS, thus making the use of these excellent underwater lenses obsolete.
