I have the RX10 mk iii. I went to california with it and took pictures at the beach from the pier of all the people on the beach. I got a few surfers in the surf as well. The pictures were sharp, and the reach was amazing. You could actually count the strands of hair on some heads that were 200 feet away. It’s become my favorite travel camera for the same reasons you describe. I just don’t want to haul a load around anymore. Bought the camera with a we’ll see attitude and was very impressed. You won’t go wrong. The weight is not bad, the glass is amazing and the batteries last for a decent time but if you go to the bush make sure you take at least three extra batteries with you because you will be snapping away.

I also have an Sony RX10 mk iii and you can have a look at my recent posts from Rocky Mountain National Park to get an idea of sharpness! I love having the option from wide-angle to 600 mm telephoto - all hand held!
Great shots!! ....found a few (quite) of moose about 15 miles this side of walden,Co but only 5:30 or so am. Believe was called lake Michigan (camping cabins w/o power area). Needed a super zoom tho for them....these are terrific!!
We considered heading up the Walden! Thanks for your comments dasher!
Going back to Alaska again sounds like a good plan! After taking a picture of the moose cow and her calf I went to a mountainside home that the owner said had a cow and calf most every morning. Of course when I arrived there were no moose to be found. I showed him picture #2 and he said that they were his pair! They were more than a mile away when i photographed them!
