    It's so new, nobody knows how good it is for badminton shots.

    The telephoto part does not look very promising with a f stop of 5.7. That means when you zoom, the picture will be very dark or you get a lot of blurring indoors without a flash.

    If your requirments are not high, then it looks interesting.
