It's a decent lens. It's a true outdoor lens and does decent work up close between 55-175 or so. I've noticed though that maxed out to 210 and trying to capture a distant image of a hawk or other bird perched on tree, for example, the IQ drops immensely; that I don't like. Is there anything better for distant shots?

An OSS lens has image stabilisation. You should correct the scores.
