I found that a monopod or tripod greatly benefits image quality at those focal lengths (although a 1:250 is the slower speed you would use to stop sports action).
Without a monopod is okay if the light is bright, but once you get a few clouds overhead then the pod is required. Though, as I have suggested before, if SR could be turned on permanently rather than having to push a button, it could cope a bit better.

So your saying that a 55-300mm is coming soon Simon

Nah ... in the grand scheme of things ... I'd prefer to not spend it on that and save up that bit more and get the Tamron 70-200 and use my Tamron x1.4 TC on it to gain the near on 300mm distance.
