Re: Using Cropping the Right Way

I'm sure ZurichPhoto will give you his take, but if you are using cropping to compensate for reach, you are really giving up quality if your output is other than post stamp size. Cropping should be used as a composition enhancing tool, within reason. When cropping is used as a digital zoom, the result will be what you would expect from a digital zoom.

Dittos on this, Ray; very well stated. Also, for the OP's question, 20mp is more than enough for sports. The best solution is not always the body, but a long, fast lens to fill the frame with the subject(s) and, as Ray stated, cropping should be an compositional edit, not a telephoto/zoom substitute.
