The Lockheed Sniper Pod is probably about as good as it gets for pod mounted targeting/surveillance sensors. I think the F-35 EOTS has better imaging but I don't know if it can zoom in as high (or perhaps the range in this video was a lot shorter).

This is a screencrap from a low-quality BBC video where the camera is looking at a screen, showing footage from the F-35 EOTS, looking at a target 49nmi / 90km away:

Interesting information but the presentation is strange to me. It's like a TV commercial and your sitting there tapping your foot with the music.
