In fact, one could argue it is the best superzoom available. That said, it is not in the same league as the less ambitious FE zooms including the kit zoom FE28-70. For any reasonable person this makes sense as a superzoom is about convenience. the fact that it does reasonably well is gravy. In the end, it does better than your lens at every focal length yours doesn't cover and that's the point.
