What's so surprising? There are tons of senseless polls in clubsnap and people are still polling for it. Anyway, anything less than 1/"shutter speed" with no kind of stabiliser can be a great disaster for beginners. But still it can be done, definitely not difficult for anyone who's trained as an SAF sniper before. I have a studio mate who was an ex-sniper, and he can safety shot at 1/60 on a 200mm zoom lens (with low wind conditions). His strong arm, wrist and waist all played a part, including the most critical part, the Art of "breathing".
