Is it good enough to be used for still images? 4K video is fairly low quality picture wise.

Impressive images! Would never have guessed an attachment could allow this. Motivates me to try some ultra macro.

Superb photos! Taking so many sharp shots and combining them into high quality images is difficult. Vibration and movement are tough to conquer at these magnifications.

Thank you Can Tuncer for allowing DPReview to share these marvelous images. They are inspiring. Would love to read a piece on how these images were made.
Thanks for sharing

Esstee: Oh oh... It's finally happening

Nikon has no idea how to organize the company. Why don't they just copy someone else. Canon seems to be doing better.

In reply to:

vscd: I remember my first Sony Memorystick with 4MB. ;) Anyway... the tech goes on and on, hightech from today will be worthless tomorrow. Except of 4k Videos I would rely on 8x32GB instead. No need to loose 256GB at once on a client...

I Never use microSD for photography. I and many others do use them for hi res music in portable audio players. Hi res albums run between 1-4GB each. Cards fill up fast. I have 4 64gb cards now. Switching cards in and out to hear different albums gets old. I will get this Samsung or something similar for my PonoPlayer. The high speed is also important. Too slow a card causes problems for hi res music players. Reliability is also an important factor.

Now if Samsung and the other card manufacturers could cut down on counterfeits!

Enjoyed this lens review a lot. One of the most interesting lenses in a long time. Can't wait to see what photographers create with it.

Beautiful images. I like the information about naming artwork. I try to name my imags.
Thanks for sharing.

I think this is an amazing lens and I don't even shoot Canon. Bravo Canon for pushing the state of the art.

For your next super lens how about a fisheye lens that is wider than 180 degrees? There was one that did 220 once. With the special glass, computers, and technology it should be possible.

I like this image. It has atmosphere and the eye bounces from the sunset to the girl and back.

Wonderful articles. Love your work. The tips are very helpful. Please keep posting them. Since there are millions of insects do you have a favorite book or guide to help identify what has been photographed?
thanks
