Depends how much your willing to spend Jes, mine cost $1400 from the U.S.  Check ikelite.com 

They are distributors thou, so you will need to find someone that supplies them locally if you want to go through them.

Got stuffed around by a local supplier over the last few months for my casing.  Was a $1100 Ikelite....now its $1750....faaarrrrk.  Wide agle was 300, now 600.

And yeah, it will cost more then the camera.  Rated to 60 metres though.

Patient wait for the Aussie dollar to improve now...hmm might have more chance with a lotto ticket.

Cheers Pete
