With vast zoom range out to 600mm1, efficient 1.0-type image sensor, large-aperture lens and much more at your command, it’s incredibly convenient for you to capture more captivating stills and movies from every perspective. Together, a large-aperture 24-600mm1 F2.4-4 optical 25x zoom lens and 1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor make subjects stand out beautifully, even when shot in extreme close-up. Extended zoom, blazing speed and complete silence3 make for a new shooting experience. The 24-600mm1 F2.4-4 25x zoom lens covers a range from wide-open vistas to extra-close-up action and sets subjects apart from surroundings with beautiful bokeh. Eight ED glass elements, including two ED aspherical and one Super ED glass element, make the large-aperture lens unit as compact as possible and realise stunning image quality all the way up to ultra-telephoto range. The RX10 III lets you shoot a subject as close as a mere 3cm (wide end) or 72cm (telephoto end) away. Image stabilisation compensates for camera shake when shooting handheld, at ultra-telephoto range or in dim light. Otherwise, such stable stills and movies are possible only with higher shutter speeds. Fixed-lens design maintains high resolution from centres to edges of images because the positions of the lens and imaging plane are precisely adjusted to take full advantage of the superior sensor.
