Extreme settings

Of course I realize this is not a great photo for a bunch of reasons (not least the damn fence), but I’m posting it because:
(a) it was shot well after dusk, in near-darkness, at ISO 6400;
(b) it was shot hand-held with a fuji 55-200 mm lens fully zoomed to 200, with a shutter speed of 1/7th of a second;
(c) how bout the paws on that guy.

The Fuji camera, and the optical image stabilization in the lens, did an amazing job under these conditions. With no other photo equipment I have ever owned could I have hoped to get even a remotely acceptable image at settings like that.
