Um. Do I misunderstand sensor crop?
I was under the impression it doesn't give you more "reach" (magnification)... it just gives you the equivelent field of view
of a longer focal length?
eg. it's still the same "reach" and magnification of a 300mm lens on a full-frame sensor... but the image is literally cropped, so that the field of view (subject area) is reduced to the same as 480mm on a full-frame sensor?
Or, putting it another way: Say you take a photo at 300mm with a full frame camera. Then take the exact same shot at 300mm with a 1.6 crop camera. Isn't the photo from the 1.6 camera, just a cropped version of the photo from the full-frame camera? With no additional magnification or detail?
