Re: More direct answers ...

One point on lenses and telephoto that is not making sense here guys/gals. Let's say I shoot with a Tamron 28-300 VC lens on DX format. At the 300 end, the image (being smaller in physical size) amounts to the equivalent of, what? 480mm? (1.6x) Take the same scene on an FX format camera, same lens (it's compatible for both formats). Image you are trying to capture might be smaller at first, or so it seems, but if you just enlarge it 1.6X from what it was originally, it's going to look the same as the DX format. Hence, the worry that you need to pack along Huge lenses or you will miss that shot are not logical. Shoot that Eagle at 300mm with the DX or the FX and when you crop and factor in the DX to FX difference, that Eagle is going to be the same size.

But for the times that you can fill the frame at FX format (35mm) then any magnification you do to it is cleaner, crisper.

In 2005 the preferred PROFESSIONAL landscape camera was 4" X 5". I have 2. S
