D7500 with a 16-80mm, and cropping.
1

I bought a 18-140mm lens to replace a 18-55/55-200 combo because I didn't like changing lens much, and when I had the 18-55 on, and I always wanted extra reach. So after using the 18-140, I counted up the shots at each focal length, and grouped them for every 200 or so shots, except at 18, and 140. I was surprised at the results. The greatest amount of shots are at 18, and at 140 (about 1/5 total for each). I know I want a ultra wide angle. But what surprised me the most was that between the 18 and 140, the greatest amount of shots were 18 through 90mm. I had a fairly even distribution of shots between 90 and 130mm.

I am in the market for a new D7500 (using a D80 right now). And a common bundle is a D7500 and the 16-80mm F/2.8-4 lens. How well would this be able to crop, so I could just use just that lens as a walk around? And to what FL could that be effective to? I know it won't be appropriate at 140mm, but I suspect I could use a better longer lens as well.
