This was shot at 550mm, 1/4000 sec and iso 1800, at the brightest part of a july day. if I had shot at f11 this would have been ISO 7200.

Clearly, an f/11 lens is not designed for people who have to shoot 1/4000s regularly.

That doesn't make it useless.

You obviously do not read posts fully. the shutter speed will be very slow in poor light and will make it useless at that time. It's a sunny day lens.
