telephoto alternatives
Apr 15, 2006

Hi. I posted this question on the q/a forum but so far no responses. I have an A2 and may get a Kenko 2x tele. We're going to South Africa in several months and will be on safari for only a few days. While the 200mm range of the A2 should be fine for scenics I'd like to get close to 600mm for wildlife.

I've tried stepwise up interpolation to get a sense of how well cropping can substitute for a telephoto and it looks pretty impressive on the monitor but I wonder about image quality vs. optical enlargement with a telephoto. Anybody know of any side-by-side test sites.

Thanks for your input.
