It was designed to the highest standard with 14 glass elements in 10 groups. The EMWL Objective Lenses generate an inverted image, making it appear upside down. The Relay Lens corrects the inverted image and relays the image back to the focusing unit and sensor. It is 150mm in length and only 62mm at its widest point.
This completes the EMWL lens and there are three different versions with varying degrees of angle-of-view - 130°, 100° and 60°. You can swap the objective lenses underwater to achieve the best results. You focus as close as the front element with the correct setting.
130° - Widest of all objective lenses and is made up of 9 elements in 7 groups. It is perfect for larger macro subjects or any image where you want to see more of the background.
100° - The most versatile of the 3. It is the smallest in physical size making it a good choice for timid subjects and tight spaces. It is designed with 9 elements in 6 groups.
60° - If you like a narrower angle-of-view or would like the background elements to look more compressed, this one is for you. There are three focusing ranges that can be set on the lens, 00-55mm, 55-25mm and 25-0mm. It is designed with 9 elements in 6 groups.
