Its the hope and prey method by cropping into the shot.- Hey It locked and hit focus so lets crop into the files and do something with the shot
Ive got 500MM on this baby, I can track it and frame it and know i have 10-12 from a FPS bust that will work
FPS is served well by low sensor pixel counts at this point in time, but crop modes with denser sensors are also faster than the full dense sensor, if not quite as fast as you might hope.
I mean thats the difference and I think this is why you see guys like tom who shoot wildlife and sports shooters like Red dog opt for optics VS sensor crop ability
Which is better optics; a 400/4 or a 200/2, both limited mainly by diffraction wide open (which is therefore their sweet spots)?
A camera with 4x the pixel density for the 200/2 than one for the 400/2 will have the same pixels-on-subject, light-from subject, and light per pixel. It will allow a FOV twice as wide, though, when needed.
Maybe I have this wrong in my thinking. I get crop-ability but I would not use that as a determining factor to consider a camera to buy
I might be wrong in my thinking
Wondering what other would choose here
I think we are better served to buy optics at this point and time with the camera sensors
What about both?
