z7: Best Spotting Scope Ever?

Using the zoom button in Shooting mode, it appears to me that we can get 8x, 16x, or 24x Magnification. And of course this works with any of our lenses, and we also get image stabilization.

So, for example,  the 300mm F4 PF Lens offers 6x by itself. Hence the combination can be used as a spotting scope with these magnifications:

  1. 6x
  2. 48x
  3. 96x
  4. 144x.

With a 100mm lens:

  1. 2x
  2. 16x
  3. 32x
  4. 48x.

Etc.  And we have the option to capture a high resolution image as well.

With a fast lens, it might even be good for stargazing.

So why would anyone who has a Z7 buy a spotting scope?
