24 Megapixels vs. 16 vs. 10 - How much of a cropping advantage?
Dec 31, 2012

Using a lens that has a maximum range of 105mm (150 mm full frame equivalent,) how close to or beyond a 300mm full frame equivalent can I get by cropping before the resolution of the image is too low to be acceptable when viewing images on a 27" monitor.

How much better would photos shot with a 16 MP sensor be than those with a 10MP one? How about with a 24MP sensor? Is there a mathematical formula I can use to calculate the answers?
