SushiEater: Sickening!!!!

@stevo23 yes it is! It's disgusting (used in the right sense). Like the above photo, it is a matter of perspective and of being subjective. What or who is "worst" the photo or the people that voted for it? It did win fair-and-square afterall. What does that say? (TIC)

@Sushi, yes, you are right, but it is not RAW.

Disgusting is not really the right word as the origins of disgust appertain to taste, and I can safely assume you are not going to eat it!

Murat ÜNSAL: The competition subject is too forced. The subject has been exceeded. There is no abstract depth or aesthetic value.

I guess it's a dog turd on the turf.

It is quite literally a 5hit photo.

Humour aside, and I think I can visualise the photographer sniggering in some dark corner. The interpretation of the theme is unique, interesting and amusing. Is this the first time a pile of 5hit has won a competition?

Congratulations!

Wye Photography: 4 of those cameras I had and 1 I still have.

What would I add.

Hmmm....

I have a Kiev 4 with its sharp Jupiter 50mm in its leathger case that still smells of Soviet Russia.

Oh! Without doubt the Olympus Trip 35. I have two, one with green leatherette done very nicely by www.tripman.co.uk

Yashica Matt 124. (still have the "G" varient)

Mamiya C330 goes for a good price these days.

Pentax P30 (still have mine with 28mm, 50mm and 135mm lenses.

Praktica MTL5, my first camera which I also still have.

Finally, Canon's version of the XA which I think was called the EF and came with a better lens than the XA, really sharp. The motor advance sounded like a coffee grinder on heat. Oh, I have two of those.

@FrancoD Many thanks, the model just didn't come to mind and as I have not used it for some years I could not think what the little thing was called. I blame age. You are right! It is the MC (Micro Compact). It's not very pretty, makes a dreadfuol noise when advancing the film, runns on AAA batteries and has auto-focus. The lens is damned good though and has a nice little red band around it.

davids8560: The main thing here that everyone will see clearly and very soon is that Nikon will come out on top, regardless of reality or what actually happens, which I can say without any doubt just by weighing in upon the measure of my own uniquely uniform and insightfullly sincere cluenessless. You could say it goes without saying. Nikon will in fact make the greatest mirrorless cameraever, seemingly out of the blue, despite the many years leading to inevitable overnight success. I'm afraid the jig is up. The sleeping giant is stirring. Nikon is the. Hampton of the field. The others will choke on their spittle and lather. I are educated inasmuch as many of you and so we can agree. Thanks!

Thank you for bringing mirth to an otherwise bland day.

Manfred Bachmann: i just wonder if it could be an adobe penalty also, because in capture one the image looks better to my eyes.

My thoughts exactly. I have recently bought the RX10iii as my main camera and Capture One Express free with it. I just get a better result in noise and colour in Capture One than Lightroom. I have been with Lightroom since inception but I am seriously considering not renewing subscription.

I still have mine, together with the 5060, E-1 and E-300. I still enjoy using my "old" cameras. This one is a classic, great looks, fabulous lens, enjoy using it. Having sold all my gear except the above, my E-620 to use an RX10iii.

CaPi: Tempting.. tempted.. to not buy a long zoom for travel.. safari..
Tempted to upgrade my FZ1000 backup

Sweet shots

The RX10M3 lens is a good deal better than the FZ1000. Not to mention the RX10 feels more solid, a slightly better DR and noise. The RX10 has dust and moisture seals.

Mario russell: i want to buy one of these cameras for outdoor and nature photography while hiking. I like both Sony RX10 111and Panasonic Z 2500 zoom range.
The question are how will it focus in trying conditions through branches and dim light? Can it focus on a bird or small object between branches on a tree? Can it replace a big heavy zoom while hiking? Both take excellent pictures but which is sharper between the two and at what focal length.
I expect any of these cameras to perform well capturing a large Boeing with good light.

Have a read of Aroart's comments below (if you haven't already).

According to this site the lens on the FZ2500 isnt as good as on the FZ1000. I have the RX10M3 and had the FZ1000. I can tell you for sure the lens on the RX10M3 is a good deal better then the FZ. I have only experienced focus hunting at 600mm in quite low contrast situations. The RX10 lens is amazingly good. I took a big risk in buying it, but I am so glad I did. It is a supoerb lens. Can it replace a big heavy zoom when hiking? I think the question should be "Do you want to carry a big, much more expensive zoom when hiking"? I have shown some bird pix taken wide open at 600mm to the comments of "that's sharp". Sure, a Canon 600mm f/4 will be better at the job. But how much is that lens? Soon I'm off to Portugal to shoot bird with my brother-in-law, he's using a 5DRS and a 200-400mm L lens, me, well, I'll be using the RX10 of course. We are going to do a shoot out. Should be fun.

Cyador: If Sony had put an aps-c sensor in the RX10 III it would have been a very interesting camera, even at the current price.

The Sensor of the RX10iii is extremely capable. I am very happy with it.

GEONYC: Sony: Is a 24-600 really sharp, and does it shoot RAW. Nikon D5: Who needs 3mil.ISO.

How many people out there have ever shot at above, 32,000ISO or more. How many at above 6,400 ISO., especially when, "Steady Shot" adds 3-4 stops to the mix. I have never needed to shoot above 3200. I don't get it. No wonder Nikon is in trouble. They used to produce some of the best cameras and lenses, but then they got into the, "Competition Mode" and you can't win over Canon (In the 80s-90s) and Sony now. Am I the idiot? Don't answer.

The lens of the RX10iii is sharp wide open at 600m. It's very sharp at 600mm at f/5.6
