If the shot had been correctly framed in the first place (with the focal length required to fill the frame), it would have much higher image quality than the severe crop presented. The number of pixels doesn't change this fact; high pixel count merely alleviates the damage done by the approach.

Duh!

Iilka...I deliberately did NOT "correctly frame" the image. The whole purpose was to demonstrate (as I clearly indicated in the original post) the extraordinary cropping options that the D800's 36mp allows us.

You may have a different opinion, but I and others who have also posted here, consider this a major benefit of using the D800.
