Re: Canon 7D (MARK 1 cropped) and Canon EF 50mm F/1.4 USM

why do you call the 7D 'cropped' ?

all cams are 'cropped' from the massively large sensors out there (8"x10" digital sensor - largest I could find) in the world, even 35mm, medium format or 1/3" cell phone sensors - they are all cropped, no ?

and for all of us that know about the 7D, we know the size of the sensor - referred to aps-c from the old days of smaller than 35mm film cams used by the masses in compact cams, good enuf for family get together's or office parties.


8"x10" is fairly large, so ALL modern cams have 'cropped' sensors, no ??


approx 7"x7"

and who knows how large unreported digital sensors there are, used by the military or science these days ?

so now you know, so what is 'cropped' ??
