| p.1 #1 · Prime-Lens-Zoom : or, how to crop you happy |
as I got the new D600s with 24 MP and the possibility so switch to 1.5 crop mode in a matter of 1 second I start thinking:
Many want light, versatile equipment. But instead we lugg around big zooms or go primes and carry 3-4 (or more) to be versatile.
We all learned cropping is bad, because you loose image-quality, increase depht of field and it is often considered bad style. "compose in camera" is what the pros do, right?
I want to keep it simple (as I am faster on more creative), don,t want to lugg around and change lenses the whole time. With 24 MP I have all the reserves I need.
Last wedding I used the 28/1.8 on one body and the 50/1.4 on the other. Not more. When more reach was needed I just switched to crop mode and had a 75/1.4 (or something like that because DOP increases).
When this still was not enough I could crop in post. Faster then any lens change would have been, and sure more convinient then carry more lenses. I can crop to a equivalent of a 100 mm lens (12 MP) or even tighter, as I think even 9 MP is still enough.
Bottom line, 2 very lightweight lenses, one 28 (you could even crop here to 35) and one Prime-Lens-Zoom (ha) 50 - 135.
(As I am writing this, I get quite excited of the possibility of being sooo light and versatile)
What do you think?
