Default Beer at 10 feet

Here is a lady holding a beer bottle, about 10 feet away. Handheld in low light.
1/60 ISO 1600.
The group present wanted to know if we could read the words on the bottle.
This lens really needs a tripod, but with versatile camera settings (high ISO) you can get away with some hand held, even with this f8 lens.

Default better?

I think the lens can do better.
Those shots were (outdoor) monopod and (indoor) handheld.
This next one is with a tripod.
ISO3200 1/20. Focus set on "Phosphorus".
Still I have a 60-300 f 4.0-5.6 that seems more versatile, and is a more practical range.
