I brought 5D3 with the same 100-400L into the zoo in the past Sunday. Compared to previous sets done from my 60D, I found 5D3 photos are sharper despite I need to crop more. FF 6D/5D3 withstands cropping much better than APS-C.

The lions stayed at far end of the rock. I have to crop around 60% but it's still sharp even I cropped to 100% that is something my 60D cannot match.

Nice examples. Note though that 100% crops on APS-c can be had also. Depends on the camera as well.

100% APS-c crop Example:

Not bad, but not very sharp and some details are washed out from what I see to be honest.  FF cameras have much better per-pixel IQ over APS-C.

Even that small size of the photo before cropping is not that sharp. FF cameras such as 5D III is noticeably sharper, LOL

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
