s100fs digital zoom ..first attempt

Saw these kids at a soccer practice enroute home this evening so pulled over and took this shot from inside my truck. They were at least 250 meters away so I switched to digital zoom and closed in as much as I could. Then in CS2 I cropped to make a more focused image and sharpened slightly using high pass.

Here's what I started with:

and here's the crop:

I was pleasantly surprised at the results, but then I wasn't expecting too much.

It does make me think this cam will be just fine for sports as long as one isn't standing next to a racetrack and trying to catch really high speed action.

What do you think?
