Well said.  This is not a specialized birding camera.  400mm is too low for that.  But for sports and the "soccer mom", this is as complete a camera as you can get.  Who actually needs 500-1200mm? If you're being honest it is only avid birders, and they are a very small proportion of the camera-buying market.  This camera on the other hand, has its sights set on a much wider demographic where the greatest strain on its reach will be trying to catch junior at little league (which it will do just fine).
