250-1100mm the camera reports the max aperture at a constant 5.6 right around the 1100 mark it drops down to 6.5

If it really is f5.6 @1100 mm, then it would  be quite good.

It may as well start another debate w.r.t Pana FZ 200 , which is f 2.8 @ 600 mm

Can u post some images in super fine mode ( 5 bit jpg) at 1000+ mm, with the mode set to S ( shutter) and SP faster than 1/500.

I am asking super fine mode as the 5 bit JPg has extremely low JPG artifacts, which most people on the forum call "noise".
