so im wondering. The 6d as a crop would be around 14mp. So if i take a long shot with the 100-400 which even on the rebel i make a big crop of, would the extra mp's of the rebel equate to more detail in a big crop. Im talking detail on the subject,

i know the 6d has more mp, but it has a wider view meaning less pixels actually on the subject when its a long shot and the subject may only be a small part of the overall image.

If you cropped the 6D image to the same size as the Rebel image you'd have 9 MP. Based off my experience and what I've seen posted elsewhere, the image at low ISO will be roughly equivalent. Some will argue because you have 18 MP vs 9 MP you should see more detail.  As the ISO goes up the 6D image will have less noise.

This may change with a truly superior lens such as the 500mm or 600mm primes.  I'd expect in that case the Rebel image would be be significantly better.

You may find lots of samples back to back by googling,etc..
