A thousand people can make this sort of argument a thousand times, and all the while superzoom enthusiasts will be running around having fun snapping birds at 1000mm+ EFLs, partly thanks to exceptional image stabilization mechanisms and excellent continuous shooting performance.

It really is possible, otherwise most of us probably would have stopped trying by now.

Indeed. I routinely shoot airshows with FZ200 and a teleconverter, at equivelent focal lengths up to 900mm or 1020mm, hand-held and with image stabilisation turned off  for panning. I get plenty of decent results.

Its down to old school techniques, and lots of practice...
