Do you need 36 megapixels?

This will be the shortest blog post I have ever done.

Do you need 36mp?

Here is the full image shot with a D800 and 85mm lens wide open.

Now, look at the crop (you gotta click on the photo to really appreciate it)…

Look at me.  You can see me in the eyes.  LOL.  I mean, the detail is just ridiculous.  Those $20,000 Medium Format Hasselblads are looking a little more expensive right about now.

Like I said, this is going to be a short blog post.  I don’t think anything else needs to be said.  -Chris

  1. It is great for printing and cropping, but sometimes it can be a little too much with 36MP. I don’t envy Canon users that buy the new 50MP Canons.
