I don't agree with the crop theory. You will not make as good a print of a bird by cropping 1/32 (or whatever) of your full frame sensor, with a wide angle lens attached, as I will by zooming in on the bird with my cheap Canon SX230HS travel zoom, even if your full-frame camera had similar pixel density. For starters, you won't be able to stabilize the image enough to take advantage of the resolution you need.

Keep it apples to apples. I never said anything about a wide angle lens. But a 36 MP FF would be able to generate a print with the same resolution as your point and shoot with a 135mm lens cropped.

What's the cause of all your anger? It can't be full frame cameras or high resolution.

No anger, just information and opinion. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and as to the information, apparently you could benefit from it.

You opinions read more like absolute declarations. 6MP is enough for everybody. If a DPR poster says pixel peeping a 200x300" print is the baseline for IQ, apparently we all have to buy cameras that can do that. I'm fine with sharing opinions and information; I can do without the anger and projections of personal tastes as absolute edicts.
