Nikon 300mm f4 vs Superzoom
Aug 6, 2011

For a static bird, do you think Nikon 300mm f4 with 1.4x TC will have a much better IQ than a superzoom camera like HS20 when HS20 is used at 720mm? Nikon has a effective zoom of about 600mm when used with a crop camera while HS20 has a crop zoom of 1224mm when used with a TCON 17.

What about video wise? Can 300mm f4 takes better quality video at extreme than HS20?

For people who has both superzoom and DSLR with telephoto lens, please come in and shed some light. Because I currently have a superzoom and I wish to upgrade to a DSLR+300mm f4 which will cost me $2000. I really hope to hear from you guys before I make the payment.
