Cropping vs. Zooming
1

Now that we have a camera with a 40 mp sensor, I'm wondering about a strategy for traveling.  Should I take the 16-55 2.8 and leave the 50-140 2.8 home?  This would allow me to "shoot loose" and crop in post rather than "shoot tight" with a longer range zoom. BTW I'm not planning on printing anything larger than 11 x 14".

So, could the higher resolution sensor with a sharp prime or medium telephoto lens reduce the need for larger/heavier longer telephoto lenses?
