In case you didn't noticed: we are talking about the quality of Fuji zoom lenses versus cropping pictures made by short range, bulky DSLR lenses. A thousand mm zoom lens camera has no need to crop the images (I won't mention the intelligent, very sophisticated Fuji in-camera software which uses pixel binning for magnification and which results in lossless magnification by a factor two) If I do I'm sure you start crying.

I have no need to shoot photos at such outlandish focal lengths. If I did I would buy a longer tele or zoom and still do better with cropping.

Pixel-binning? "Lossless magnification"? LOL.

You don't TAKE a photo, you MAKE a photo.

Cropping is very bad for the image quality and a bigger lens is very bad for your back and for your wallet. b.t.w. nowadays I eat my pizza's uncut because my chainsaw is in repair.

You must be getting the thick crust.

Thick ... I think that says it all.
