A question haunting me: The Sony A7 Mk II offers 24mb resolution. I shoots birds and butterflies; even with a 400mm lens, very often I end up cropping the FF image to APS-C size or smaller; often I shoot in APS-C mode for 'perceived reach' that gets me a 10mb image file. How would that compare with using say the APS-C size Canon 80D (also 24mb)? Here I would have a non cropped 24mb file as compared with a similar Sony A7 cropped image which would be a 10mb file. Which would offer better image quality for making prints of size 20x30 inches?
Thanks so much!

Thaz more or less how I do. Instead of cropping my 

24MP FF images I switch the lens to a 24MP APSC

body, so I have the cropping but not the loss of MP. 

I happen to use an E-mount APSC body. That way I

can use the same lens on both bodies. 


You would get the same effect using a Canon APSC  

body but I'm not sure if you're using adapted Canon 

lenses on your FF Sony. However you work it, you'd 

wanna be able to share lenses between the formats.
