Has to be CLEANER shadow recovery than D7100 because its images are a heap better than the old Canon 18 MP and more pixels equals a heck of a lot more cropping ability.

Wow, 20Mp against 18Mp means you get 5% more pixels in linear resolution - that means that you now can crop by an amazing 5%.

Cropping is something for which you should get a jolt of direct current from your mouse every time you access the crop tool in your image editor!

Exactly, Karl. I don't understand how serious photographers are still believing that more pixels are better. It was true when we went from 1MP to 3, and to 5, and when I recently went from 12 to 18. But the increases now are too small to matter. Even on my 18 MP cam, the better low light performance matters more than the number of pixels.

I suppose some people use the Magnify tool far too much.
