So for me that 600mm equivalent effort worked fine and am looking forward to next after Christmas Aussie discount period to get the rather nice Mk2 Oly 75-300mm, and then of course try the 2x digital teleconverter to see if I can manage to hand-hold 1200mm equivalent.

This morning I started a thread (that went nowhere) with good images at that 1200mm equivalent. But I was on a tripod. I wouldn't say that a lot of people can (compared to the number that can't) hold a 300mm with digital teleconverter steady at 1/30 of a second. Most people have noticed that this can't be done by the majority of human beings. More power to your super powers if you can. But don't hold yourself up as a standard issue human.
