Re: Why do you want crop?

It "may" be captured with higher resolution, but that has nothing whatsoever to do with the crop factor. We need to attribute things to the real causes, such as pixel density. A crop factor on a single sensor that you may have otherwise used whole does not change the pixel density at all.

Yes, pixel density, or as we used to say, "pixels per duck" as in wanting the maximum resolution for our distant subject. The downside to pixel density, when using it as a pseudo-magnifier, is that it comes with more noise (less DR) also, especially when you start cranking up the ISO.

The advantage of the 1.6 cameras is pixel density, potential size, and price.
