Yes, I am baiting a bit with the title, but despite the endless gear-hate (all products and brands), the truth is all but the worst lenses by a given vendor are able to do great things. This is by no means a good picture, or a particularly interesting bird (I think it is the one that poops on your car just after you get out of the car wash...), but to be able to quickly point a camera at a tiny, fast-moving creature this far away, and get this as a result speaks volumes to how lucky we are to have the gear that is available now.

This is a 100% (1000x1500 pixels) crop shown.

I'm very happy with mine.
