Folks
Forgive what might seem like a nugget question.

I'm trying to get more resolution out of my Bigma.

Not for printing large pix, just for pixel-peeping to try and read and see far away details.

I've tried various things (chiefly using a TC) but really I think more mp is the answer.

Question: If I used a D800 and cropped the 36mp image, would I resolve more detail than using my D300s?

(I wish they'd bring on a 36mp DX cam! I KNOW that would work)
