Hi Carl,

              Yes, it is incredible to say the least, better than bins to ID 
tiny birds at the limit of my 10x42s.

               Pinpoint auto focus.

                Will be using it more over the next 3 weeks under different 
conditions which may test its limitations.

                 Main disadvantage is the weight, compared to my previous 
Panasonic but the unbelievable zoom more than compensates. Even at max zoom the 
image stabilisation works well, depending on how excited or boozed up you are.

            Not waterproof.

               As well, today I shot an Eastern Spinebill feeding on a scented 
Camellia outside the kitchen window.  The Panasonic, and also a Canon tend to 
focus on the glass, but the Nikon did not.

                (Yellow-faced and Lewin honeyeaters also feed on this small 
pink Camellia, name unknown)

                 Not being a Camera buff or tech head I don't really know what 
it can't do, but for the record shots I'm after, it is
