Ansel Adams can do a better job in the dark room than I can do in Lightroom!

MarioV: The close-ups needed more depth of field. I dont really enjoy seeing just the midsection of the subjects. Narrow the aperture down, increase the light if necessary.

I'm very familiar with macro and focus stacking. I dont expect full dof here, but increased dof would be achieved by either narrowing the aperture or use tele macro. Its nothing new.

MarioV: This is awesome.
Imagine, aberration-free lightweight lenses for cameras.
Tamron can use this to make an optically perfect 16-500mm lens.

odpisan, Yes please, and fits in pocket. I'd like to take portrait photos of nanobots and landscapes on planets around other stars.

ArchiDeos: Balance and fair Journalism.. This is the exact concern here and not the camera at all. I see DPR what they are trying to achieve here. But publishing a comparo test with a questionable test method will ignite readers to tap their keyboard.

BTT, as many suggest, at least two photos must be present here for comparison test. Lesson learned DPR, we appreciate all your doings here and I hope we can do better. Cheer up guys..

Nice summary. I hope Lesson learnt too.
The most popular post has 61 (5 dozen) readers agree that "destroys" wasnt the most sensible word to use.
Barney 'Hardly dozens" spoke too soon.
But yes, we do appreciate DPR.

Boss of Sony: This is the greatest camera ever made.

If cost/size/weight are no considerations, then I would agree.

MarioV: Very nice performance by the RX10 III. But when cameras are meant to get smaller, not bigger, I'm not sure I would use the RX10 more than my G3 X.

I dont have the EVF. People who have the EVF love it, but many of them find that they rarely use it anyway.

rrccad: Nice review of the optical qualities.

however this is missing some points here for both the panasonic and the canon that should be highlighted and it's a disservice to both that they are not.

both are significantly lighter than the RX10 III (200-300g), they cost significantly less and they are much smaller to boot.

that obviously plays into the optical qualities illustrated here.

"The Canon PowerShot G3 X's trump card has been trumped." sounds like something that you'd expect from SAR.

I look at the G3X as a compromise between portability and focal length - the RX10 III certainly is not in the same category as the G3X as far as portability, or even the FZ1000 as well.

In reality, the image quality between the Sony, Canon and Pany are virtually the same. Any competent user, especially who shoots raw, will achieve great photos with any of these cameras.

Ethan, if you MUST have a built-in EVF and 4K video, then the RX10 III is a great option if you're happy with the weight and cost. There is also the upcoming Nikon DL that meets the requirements up to 500mm f/5.6.
Those camerasize comparisons are not life-size on screen, so its a bit misleading. The Sony and Pany are significantly larger than the Canon.
Oh, and the Canon is weathersealed.

I have to agree. The RX10 III does provide slightly better optics at 100% at the corners, but to use words like "destroys" [the competition] is a bit silly and fanboyish. Slight improvement vs significant increase in price and size. Law of diminishing returns apply.

Yes. A smaller bag and the camera itself being less conspicuous when in use.

On photo Manor in Udine in the Your City - Just One House challenge (5 comments in total)

I think the image is fine as it is with the artifacts actually adding to the overall image. "ghostly", "creepy", "dream-like or nightmarish" and "haunting" could be some words to describe it - especially since the author mentioned its said to be haunted.

All high quality and interesting at the same time. Perfect.

Looking at the studio scene comparisons, the Lumia 950 matches or outperforms all other phones.
