Okay can someone please enlighten me. For a 1.6 crop body like the Canon Rebels why don't you just take the shot with a few steps backward to get the result of a full frame? Maybe I am wrong so someone need to enlighten me. So for a full frame you take the picture and you can see a lot more than a 1.6 crop body. Okay now, so for a crop body like the 7D or rebel, why don't people just step back more in order to get everything in to the picture? For example if you take a picture from a full frame at 10 feet, wouldn't you get the same stuff in the picture with a rebel taken at 15 feet? Please tell me what am I missing, THANKS!

That's the reason for their existence

This must enlighten the OP as requested.
