Impressive piece of kit !!!.....Landscapers 'Wide' to 'Birders' Tele....amazing !!

The ISO test shots look pretty good up to at least 1600, with some very clean
images, & the colour WB images all look very crisp !!......& what a cracking moon
shot, full stretch, wide open @ ISO 500.....wow !!

Surprisingly heavy at 595grms (lots of glass I suppose ??)....but still a hell of a
lot lighter than a DSLR + 1200 Tele !!!!!!!

Look forward to the full review.......Smile
