    Finally got the chance to get the new camera underwater at Lake Wazee in Wisconsin. I hope they aren't too big, if so I'm sorry in advance....
    Most are small mouth bass that will follow you around underwater waiting for you to turn over the rocks so they can snatch up the crawdads..

    P7160378.

    P7160389.

    P7160520.

    The herd follows you around ...waiting....
    P7160550.

    It helps the lake is clear and COLD!!!! Probably had about 10-15' of visability. Sunny day, and since they are all shot with no lighting or strobe I was very happy.....

    Is it easy to change settings with that housing? I enjoyed these because I'm not sure I've ever seen underwater lake shots from that region of the country!!

    I really didn't do alot of changing. But what I did was pretty simple to operate.. I am really happy with it...

    Wow, Really good quality... great detail..
    That 14mm is a Sea/Land lens... about a 20mm under water?

    Man I don't even know if it would fit in the standard housing without a Zen port...Which I can't even think about right now......

    How far North? We are just north of Elkhorn, which is north of Lake Geneva...

    Sorry if I missed it, but what housing were you using? I'm thinking of getting a Pana GF2 as there are a few housings available for it; so I'm really curious about how m43 cameras work under water.

    Some really wonderful shots getting up on mu-43 lately. Hummingbirds. Clear water lakes. Thanks for sharing!

    Love the pictures! And I can definitely sympathize with the cold water -- I'm in Waukesha about 10 minutes from Pewaukee Lake.
