Whoa! Even with a tripod this stuff is hard with my camera, Fujifilm HS50exr. The engineering is just not up to it, even with "only" 42* zoom. Maybe Nikon engineering is better.

Whilst it is just amazing to me that it is even possible to find and hand-hold at 1,000mm-equiv, with easy to locate subjects, finding a dot in the sky and zooming in on it is not easy ...because the subject may be centred when zoomed out, it disappears out of the frame when zoomed in. The mechanism is not concentric within close enough tolerances.

I suppose that, to achieve really impossible specs at affordable consumer-market prices, something has to give. I suppose that there is a reason why "superzoom" lenses don't seem to be available for DSLRs, although I would have thought there would be a market for them among those who are willing to trace some quality for convenience.

I do enjoy my 1,000-equiv zoom, especially when the sunbirds are posing at their nest --- but it is an awful lot easier to find a birds nest a few metres away than one bright spot in a black sky.

Of course, picking up a camera and pointing it straight at the thing one is looking at is a skill in itself, and one I need to improve.

I have been shooting Fuji for last 6 years. Presently I have the x-pro2 and x-T20 with 5 lenses. They take fantastic photos, reliable and light weight for travel.

Lou Wilson, I am compelled to post that your photos are the most sensitive and the most evocative visual treats of the Sub-Continent that I have EVER come across, anywhere.
