Why use Nikon Nikonos lenses underwater?

Nikonos submersible lenses have been a foundation of underwater photography for over 30 years. Unlike land lenses placed into waterproof ports, Nikonos lenses were specifically designed for the unique optical challenges of underwater imaging. Many professional photographers consider these lenses the sharpest underwater optics ever designed. And rightfully so, as their optical performance does not suffer from the limitations of land lenses placed behind waterproof ports. Dome ports and flat ports, irrespective how good, suffer from inevitable field curvature, distortions and chromatic aberrations. On the other hand, when tested the UW-Nikkor 15mm F/2.8 with Imatest software, it exhibited similar corner sharpness at f/5.6 underwater as Arri Master Prime lens on land - trully remarkable and not possible to achieve by placing even the best land lens behind an optical port.

    Benefits of using Nikonos lenses underwater:
    Nikonos lenses are the only optics currently available that out-resolve the RED Epic sensor across the entire frame.
    No more porthole view, port distortions, aberrations or fuzzy edges.
    Nikon Nikonos submersible lens compatibility achieves uncompromised image quality underwater.
