Re: extended tele conversion vs. cropping

I would agree with previous posters. You might like to try:

Shoot at maximum image size, max jpeg quality, no sharpening, and without tricky extensions and without digital zoom. Practice, practice, practice avoiding camera shake, trees moving in the wind, bad light, etc. and find out the sweet spot (f-number) of your lens for best image quality.

When you get an image that looks good enough to you, then crop, post-process as you like it but bear in mind any over-sharpening on that scene, esp. before re-sizing (down?) would look really cr@ppy, IMHO.
