But it's not more range. It's a cropped area of a larger FOV still. This is what others are not comprehending.
Of course more MP gives the ability to crop more and still have what appears to be increased magnification.
The images I took show clearly the lost FOV on the crop camera. The image I shot on the FF camera can then be cropped to appear at the same magnification as the cropped senor image.
IF both cameras had exactly the same pixel count this would not be an argument. Ignore pixel density/count it's not my argument.
Using the pixel density argument you can use exactly the same argument comparing a 6D to a 5DR. Of course you can crop more with more data.
