Not impressed with what i have seen so far.

is it just a glorified spotting scope?

good enough to take an ID pic, but won't win any photo comps anytime soon?

..Yes, you're right..

..the P1000 camera ($1,000) in no way going to replace..

..let's say, a D850 camera ($3,300) with this 800mm f/5.6 lens ($17,900)..

..Nikon AF-S Nikkor 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR lens..

If thinking/ wishing BIG, why limit yourself to just 800mm f/5.6?

Go for the Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 EX DG that's a 800-1000mm f/5.6 with matching TC. (available for Nikon & Canon EOS lens mount)

Of course you'll need a photog assistant like Mongo(Blazing Saddles) to carry the camera, lens, and tripod.

Cheers,
Jon
