If its not at least as sharp as the 24 TSE II wide open on the wide end, and maintain the resolution of the hubble telescope at the long end, then it'll be a total fail and I'm switching to Olympus.  LOL

They should make it with an EF mount.  Add some IS in there too.  Make it an L lens while you are at it.

I could get some good pictures at the game from the nose bleed seats with a 2x. 

You do need a 2000mm to get a good picture of the Moon.

Can you imagine the sort of camera shake you'll get with a 1000mm equivalent held at arm's length?

Oh I dunno about that.  Even at f/7.1, in sufficiently bright light - say, the Utah salt flats at high noon, or better yet, the dayside on Mercury - one ought to be able to get a high enough shutter speed.
