D800E with AF-S 300mm f2.8 VRI
Oct 8, 2012

The D800E has 36MP and the D3s has 12.1MP.  The D800E has approximately 3x the number of pixels on approximately the same size sensor, 24mm x 36mm.  Now, if I crop 1/3 of an image from the D800E, I would have the same resolution of an image from the D3s.  Am I correct?

For example, if I took an image of an automobile that fills the sensor from the D3s, and compare that image to an image of the same automobile, but it only covers 1/3 of the D800E sensor, and then I cropped that automobile and display 100% cropped, both images will have the same number of pixels?
