Cropping, cropping, and more cropping

Ultra necessary for birding

Everything else is just icing on the cake

Just curious, I am not a BIF photographer and own zero zoom lenses and the longest FL I have used was the Sigma 150-600 at the camera store parking lot. From my own personal experience and the very little I have used long lenses what I understand is that it is not easy to photograph moving objects with long lenses, but the point is this, don't you have to be extreme careful as to how you shoot anything that is moving specially with higher MP cameras?

Doesn't it get worse as you increase MP? When you crop, and crop and crop (or in general) isn't there more blurr if one doesn't know what they are doing? You make things sound very simple

As you said it the more megapx the less forgiving if shaky. Still the IBIS should be enough intelligent to understand the difference between a shake and a panning.

On that subject, it's interesting to note that a number of the longer GM zooms have two or more separate OSS modes, one of which is purportedly optimised for panning.

Presumably that's because the stabilisation can adjust better for panning actions (and differentiate them form other movement) if you tell it in advance that that's what you will be doing...
