Obviously the FF camera will be at an advantage to the cropped camera - assuming price is the same. For those who think that a cropped camera is beter because of the "tele" effect, the same can be gotten on a FF cam, just crop the centre youself and viola, a tele effect from the FF cam.
AJ's wish for a 1.5x crop 2xcrop etc is much better than using PS to batch crop - first, you get to shoot RAW with a smaller file size (don't have to save the whole FF RAW), ie, more shots per card, second, you dont waste time doing batch. I also second FF with options for crop
hmm... izit tt my understanding is wrong?
for a FF 6MP, say, if I'm using a 200mm lens. I'll get 200mm focal length picture at 6MP.
If I use a 1.5x Cropped 6MP, still using 200mm lens, I'll get 300mm focal length picture at 6MP.
Say if I wana crop FF 6MP picture to 1.5x. I'm losing 1.5x MP, you can't crop a 6MP pics 1.5x to 6MP pics isn't it?
Unless we are comparing 10.2MP FF and 6MP 1.5x cropped.
Hence, for tele lover, 1.5x cropped is preferable isn't it?
