Dumb question.. lens for D800
May 16, 2012

People don't bash me but I have a very dumb question....

If I have 28 mm 1.8, why would I need the 50 mm 1.8 or even the 85 mm 1.8. Wouldn't the fact that I have a huge resolution allow me to crop to the extent that I get same details as with a 85 mm?

Like I said, people please don't bash me. I asked because a lot of people have the same impression from 200 mm to 300 mm for normal photos (not large prints) so why not at the narrow side of the focal lengths..
