Re: Why I like pixels.
In reply to LaszloBencze, Jun 15, 2013

I like lots of pixels for cropping and pixels are cheaper than bigger lenses. An alternative for me would be lugging around a bigger lens or start my own zoo.  I don't mind carrying my 100-400mm but a 500mm would be cumbersom. This probably only applies to the subjects I prefer, birds and butterflies and furry animals. For those who shoot weddings, portraits, landscapes, architecture ... more pixels probably do more harm than good because of the nasty noise disadvantage to more pixels.

I just had to get that off of my chest because it is sore from lugging around a big lens.
