How far can I crop before losing resolution on a 4x6 print ?
Nov 4, 2012

Dear Experts..

I have to crop quiet a bit on some pictures as my longest zoom lense is a 70-200L, and this is not long enough for taking pictures of some of the kids games I'm shooting (just my son's soccer team). Any suggestions ? Any treads that I can get this info from ? I'm using '' services and I'm afraid that some of the prints would not look good if someone try to print some of the photos.

I'm shooting at 22.3Megapixel (Canon 5D MK III). I'm planning on a 100-400L soon and I hope this problem would be resolved.

Thanks again for sharing your expertise.
