The Precision 5" Dome is manufactured based on calculations using the nodal point of the Tokina 10-17mm fisheye lens and the Ikelite dSLR housing. The calculations define the distance between the lens nodal point and the dome, resulting in sharper edge-to-edge focus when compared to other generic dome ports. A wider angle of view is achieved from the use of a half-sphere dome.
The small size allows you to get extremely close to your subjects, which is great for close-focus wide-angle photography.
You will need the Ikelite 5510.11 or 5510.10 super-wide-angle port body with the dome. Another option is to use a 1.4 teleconverter (Kenko Teleplus Pro 1.4x) in conjunction with the Ikelite 5510.16 standard zoom port body.

I purchased this dome to replace the 8 inche Ikelite dome port that I purchased for the Tokina 10-17mm, which I am using on my Canon 7D. This dome is signifigantly lighter. This port does not extend below the bottom of the housing ( the 8" Ikelite does extend below bottom of the housing; so when the housing/dome are set down; alot of the housing/stobe weight is supported by the dome).
The Precision dome is a lot easier to pack, especially when your heading out on a trip half way around the world and space/weight are critical.
I have found no differences shooting the Precision 5" Vs the Ikelite 8". The only exception would be if you want to shoot and Over/Under shot, the larger dome is a bit easier to use.
Bottom line, I whish I have known about the precision 5" dome before I purchased the Ikelte 8" dome!
