I bought the DX860G package a few months ago and have been surprised by how good my snapshots have been. I though I might get the wide-angle lens to with it but have been told manufacture has been discontinued. I have seen that the lens for DX860G was compatible with the DX750...does anyone know if the reverse is true? Will the DX750 wide-angle lens work with the DX860G?

Don't know, but you can contact Sea&Sea at Sea & Sea Underwater Photography USA - Company Contacts (http://www.seaandsea.com/contacts.html).

Just give them a mail and hopefully you'll get your answer. :D

I wouldn't buy it right off the bat until I know it fits!

Yeah...I've sent off emails - but yet to get a reply. I was in Tokyo last week and asked at a couple of shops. Both had no idea so they rang Sea & Sea (a few miles away). Both got different answers...I think! I can only hope they translated with accuracy! What I really want to know is if anyone out there has seen a DX750 wide angle lens actually connected to a DX860G camera.

It should be universal, but then no harm in checking :)

According to the website the part numbers are different for the w/a lens for each of these cameras...

Turns out Joe was able to me the discontinued lens. I've since been assured the DX750 lens is also compatible with the DX860.
