Re: Simpler question to get to the specific answer

First of all, I would like to thank everybody who has tried to answer my question.

To be specific, I want to buy a D610. Currently, I have D700. I want to know if I print 11 x 14, will I see any difference in terms of sharpness if I use D610 and D700 with the following assumptions:

1. Printed at Costco

2. The exact same lens (because I am not buying new lenses, the lenses that I have are 24-70mm f2.8, 70-200 mm f2.8, etc)

Basically all the same, only the camera body is different.


It depends on what you are shooting. Some things are more revealing than others, like foliage, grass etc in a landscape shot or a detailed cityscape. I made a comparison with a 12 mp APS-C and a 24 mp FF with 50x70 cm prints. If you look closely you can pick out the 24 mp shot without hesitation, but it is not something that jumps at you.
