Cool thank you very much. It should read a 128gb sdxc card then?

Nice shot by the way..

Thanks. Id imagine so. If the card fits in the card slot.

Pretty sure GB is only limited by your wallet.

Here's a shot I took, basically a snapshot when we were out on a walk. I couldn't quite see what exactly was on the log till I took the picture and zoomed in on the touch screen. I'm not in the habit of using my tammy at 300mm due to softness issues. So pretty good crop and resize at 250mm is just as good. I probably threw away half the original image by doing this. It's fine so long as you don't pixel peep it...

No offense but that shot is useless, I wouldn't waste my time shooting with it :) Its way too soft and blurry

Seems to do just fine. I took a few overhead shots with that combo in live view. One of the reasons I love the LCD. It's great for low angles too.
I didn't do any video. Still images seem to be fine.

Thanks, the stills info was just what I was after - I was about to edit my post to clarify that.

Thank you :)

Yea outside of cropping i wouldn't know how to get better insect eye shots myself. Try extension tubes? The sell em with electrical connections so you can still control apature and AF.

Got some extension tubes and gave it a shot. All of these were taken with 52mm of extension (one 36mm and one 20mm tube) and all are uncropped. Image quality does take a noticable hit with the tubes, though:

I never shoot with mine at 300mm wide open. f/8 to f/11 is where the lens is actually pretty sharp if you have good light.

I try and avoid 300mm, I didn't realize the aperture setting. Like I said it was basically a snap shot.

Well done. You can get 3X with a 60mm macro and a full set of tubes. It is often referred to as a poor mans mp e65.

I tried all three tubes (= 68mm of extension) today.
