Thanks for the responses to my question.
I need to do some studying on crop vs full frame sensors, but for now, I'm under the impression that, with all other things equal, that a full frame sensor *will* produce more image data than a crop sensor...maybe better dynamic range, noise, low-light, .
Yes, I was quoting Mr. SquarePants. That is THE best show on TV since Wings went off the air.
Anyway, most of the time, for most people, in most situations, there is very little difference between crop and full frame. Jeez, in good light, I am happy with the results from my SX260 for web stuff, and other 'monitor' viewing. I have beautiful 8x10 prints shot with a Panasonic bridge hanging in my home. When you 'need' full frame, you'll know. Of course, if finances permit, there is nothing wrong with buying something just because you want it.
