What is the crop factor going from 10mp to 6mp?
Jul 3, 2008

If I take a picture at 50mm on a D60 (10 megapixel picture) and crop it down to the same number of pixels I would get out of a D40 (6 megapixel picture), what focal length lens on the D40 would result in the same picture as this cropped one?
