I hope you will forgive me for reposting here this page of advertising for the Sony RX10iii, which has not finished to amaze me. I have already posted a similar message in the forum dedicated to this type of camera but thought other people could be interested as well. Here is a picture of the town hall of Cachan (near Paris), taken yesterday late in the afternoon with this bridge at 24mm full frame equivalent. I draw your attention to the upper left corner of the building facing us, where we can see a decorative area in yellow bricks just above the mention HOTEL DE VILLE DE CACHAN in green.


Here is now a picture of this area taken from the same place with the same camera at 600 mm full frame equivalent. In both cases the aperture is fixed at f/4.


I let you imagine the price and weight of a full frame zoom lens covering this range of focal lengths with this aperture...
