D2X resolution still amazes me...
Aug 3, 2007

I am constantly amazed at the detail that can be taken from heavy crops of D2X shots, and to some extent the ability to crop can offset not having a longer lens available. One of the reasons I got he D2X instead of the D2HS was the better ability to crop into an image and still get lots of detail out.

Having recently sold my 500mm, I had to make do with the 70-200mm + TC-14E II to take some pictures of birds in the quince bush in our garden. Obviously the 500mm would have given a lot more detail, but there is still a reasonable amount of detail left after the crop.

The full frame is first and the crop follows.
