I'm sharing this one because of the camera I used.
It was an impulse buy at Bestbuy when I was waiting around on the car-audio install guy to discuss a build.
I think Sony claims that it has the longest focal length for its size.
The shot was at the long end=123mm but the 35mm equivalent is 720mm.
Also to note, the sensor in this camera is the size of your pinky.

I maybe mentioned this camera before? Sorry if so, but me wanting to share because you know what they say
about the camera with you and this thing is smaller than an RX100xxx=can be in a shirt pocket.

Archibald I think so too. Granted full on Sun, and I bet it will suck in any low light, but still.

Feather detail and SHARP at 30X zoom? Niiiiiice! :eek:
My regular "console camera" (the one I keep in the vehicle console just in case I don't have my regular camera with me) seriously needs updating.

Michael it's not perfect by far, e.g. no .raw, but so small=no excuse not to have on my body.

A99ii and Minolta AF400/4.5 + 1.4X TC

Goldeneye from this past Friday in one of their classic poses. The frame is a little dark... but its different, and I decided I like it.

560mm, F7.1. Cropped a bit.
