Re: Best cropped IQ - A7RII in crop mode or A6500?

To use full frame or crop mode on the a7riii is a fake choice. No matter what, the lens focal length is still 400 mm.  In apsc mode, you just throw away the outer edges of the image (crop it) so it appears that it came from a 600 mm lens.  You could have done the same thing in post processing, except with the apsc image you won’t have the option of using the extra full frame pixels.

i have both cameras, but I got the a6500 as a small backup because I travel to remote places that I’ll never go back to. I also print large where more pixels are better.
