From time to time I read how people think their D100 gives them 1.5x focal lenth. That's not right. The 1.5x factor only means the picture you take lookes like taken with a lens that is 1.5x the zoom lentgh of the len you use. In other words, it's the picture's angle of view that changes. If you zoom your 80-200 to 200, you still get 200mm, not 300mm. The picture on the D100 is actually "cropped". Reason why you need the sharpest lens you can get with a D100 or any DSLR that's not full frame.

Corret me if I am wrong.
