Hi Guys,
If I got a D800 with its 36mp, am I able to crop enough so I don't need a 500f4?
For example, I only have an AF-S 300 f4 with A 1.7TC, I can get sharp images at 100% crop but not over 100%
If I bought a 36mp D800, would the "crop ability" save me the thousands of dollars on a 500f4
Our estuary crocodiles will let me get close enough but I would rather "crop the croc" than "cop the croc"
Regards,
Gary

I used to have a photographic memory but never got it developed
