Re: Reach is King, in the land of the superzoom

I think DPR should have a special complaint tick and an automatic 1 month ban for use of the term 'soccer mom'.

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).
