If you are a nature photographer especially birds more pixels is great for cropping. After all the 7D was built for nature and sports photography. Probably even more so for nature. And Not all of us want to spend $10,000 for a 500 f4 II. Hell thats just one lens. There is other lenses like macros and bodies and flashes and bags and tripods and heads and accessories etc. Not to mention other hobbies and commitments that eats up our disposable income. Besides being expensive the big white teles are also big and heavy.

Exactly right! Fom 18Mp to 24Mp is like a lossless 1.15x TC if noise is no worse. A 400mm would give the same number of pixels on target as 460mm with only 18Mp. For those considering the 500mm f4 II (including me), that would look like 575mm.

Even better, 36Mp would be like a 1.4x TC and 400mm would look like 560mm (pixels on target).
