Re: Dumb question.. lens for D800

No bashing. One of the bonuses of longer lenses is that they give you even more pixels to put on the subject. Additionally, you get different perspectives with different lenses that you can't replicate simply through cropping. This shot below of my D3100 and 35/1.8 was taken with a 35/2 on a D700. It would look quite different if I'd been twice as far away and used a 70mm focal length, even though the magnification and number of pixels on the image would have been the same.
