Teleconverter vs new body
Mar 17, 2007

At the moment I shoot with a D70 and I was thinking about getting a 1.4x TC from Nikon to primarily use with the 70-200 VR to get more reach for shooting motorsports and American Football. The 6mp is okish, but I have to crop to much and cannot get big prints from those cropped files.

But on the other hand I could move to a D200 or D80 (want to get one in the near future anyway), gain 4mp = get bigger crops without losing a stop of light and some sharpness.

Now I want to virtually compare that. To see what a D200 file would look like I can take a D70 file and resize that to the size of a D200 file right?

But If I want create what the 1.4x TC would do, is it just a matter of increasing the D70 file by 1.4? Like this:

Is this right?

The D200 would kind of act like a 1.3x TC without loosing a stop....
