  1. The lens choices other than the 45mm 1.8 and 60 mm won't really work for the over and under shots I want to take.

    According to the Olympus port chart for that housing, the answer is no:

    I've never seen the 12mm f2 in the flesh, but I'm guessing it's compact overall length is the problem. I can tell you from experience that over-under shots are really tough with the flat port, even with the 9-18. According to the port finder at Backscatter, 2 domes from AOI would work:
    Backscatter : Underwater Camera, Underwater Video Housing, Underwater Photography, Waterproof Camera
    The Zen 100 dome meant for the 9-18 should also work. Either of those three options can be had for less than $500.
