Very interesting, Decided to see if it was worth spending anything on that Opteka 420mm-800mm fixed fstop manual focus lens.
Looks like more zoom on a softer lens will get you more detail, especially once sharpened up.
These images have all been slightly cropped to the exact same size to show the difference in magnification.
