Impressive for hand held (but why would one *not* use a tripod in such a 
case). I'm only a low-end amateur, but my Velbon DV-7000 is a modest 
price for a damped tripod.

I've always been a bit sceptical about extreme zooms, but I can see that 
they have a niche for a one-camera person who wants to do (say) a bit of 
wildlife or "long range" sports.
