To say that the Olympus is better because of the longer lens is to ignore the unique utility of 24mm wide angle. I love my LX3 and now would not buy a pocketable camera with less than a 24mm lens. It is a big issue for me, obviously not for everyone. Good pictures can be had by all these cameras. I wish that the RX100 had a wider lens.
I would say that this would be better titled Top Ten Newsworthy Photos or Top Ten Photos of Events That were Emotionally Moving to the Judges. The photos are very descriptive of the events, but I was expecting something very different when I read "Top Ten Photos"
