Superzoom compacts with 20X or higher optical zoom
Challenge has finished
Showcase the long reach on a compact superzoom camera with optical zoom able to reach 20X or more. My sample image captured a tiny ant on a flower ~15 feet away, at 150 mm focal distance. I'm interested in what you can capture at a high focal distance like that.
