Ok friends, I have a question that I can't figure out, but I am sure one of you can. I just purchased a D800 and took it out in place of my D7000 for bird shooting out of my kayak this weekend. Here is what I am trying to figure out.

If I shoot the same bird with the D800 and the D7000 using the same lens and then crop each image so the bird fills the same size image from both cameras, which camera will put more pixels in the image?

In case I just confused you, let me restate my question. After shooting the same bird with each camera using the same 500 mm lens, I view the two images on the computer. I then crop each image so the bird looks the same size on the screen and subsequent print. Which camera's image will give me more pixels?

Did I express my question in an understandable way?

Thanks,

John
