I'm sorry but this just makes me laugh.

If by "shoot sports" you mean it can take a picture in the direction of someone playing sports, then you are right.

This is a concept that lots of people just don't 'get'. Action at a distance, requiring little or no refocusing by the camera, and the camera basically pointed at some 'action' are not action shots. Okay, compared to a bowl of fruit they are action. But they are not 'sports shots' of the type that are challenging and demanding of one's camera.

When the action is closer, when it changes focus distance quickly, when you have to pan and try to keep the subject properly in the viewfinder because it is moving quickly relative to the camera, that is when the photographer finds out how well his (or her) camera can or cannot shoot sports.

It's nice to say that nice pictures are nice.
