One interesting aspect of the natural world that can wreak havoc with our ability to capture a sharp image is the phenomenon of atmospheric distortion. Atmospheric distortion is particularly troublesome for photographers using longer lenses or telescopes.

Right. The stronger the zoom is the more distortions are visible. Here you see two HS10 shots made from the same point of view.
