I am really enjoying this camera on Mavic 3 Pro. With a bit of postprocessing work the photos are perfectly printable, showing plenty of detail.
This is only small low res version to demonstrate the compressed perspective of this lens. The highrise office buildings were 5km away from the drone!

I use the the other two cameras more than the long tele, but when things are right for the longer lens I'm getting some memorable images.
It allows one to pull in the background and use it as a major element in the composition like this:

Or these panos:

And this is one of my favourites:

Nice - I use that lens all the time when the scene calls for it. I have been running the DNG output through DxO PureRAW before processing in Lightroom and have been getting excellent results.

I just downloaded the trial version of PureRAW and on first use it seems fantastic. Thanks for that. Also was playing around with the 166mm myself. Even compressed down to what we can upload here, the details are fairly good.

I most often use it for photos, but when I occasionally use it for video, the parallax effect is nice:
