    Thanks for passing this along Alan, it offers a short but effective
    visual example of the dreaded 1.5 crop factor of digital VF images for
    any dSLR plagued similarly.

    I'm not sure what you mean by that. The VF (viewfinder) of the Max 7D is 95% of
    the imaging area (which is a 1.5 crop v. 35mm).

    'plagued'? If the only format were 36x24mm in digital, there would be no
    affordable DSLR's for amateurs and the very many professionals who do not own or
    use full frame digital cameras. For those who want to shoot digital, the
    cropped sensors are enablers, not a plague.

    On the other side of the coin they also provide an effective longer focal
    length, without aperture loss, which is a benefit to many. At that, shooting in
    the best part of the lens is a further benefit. The only real drawback is
    shooting at very wide angles.

    http://www.photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=2616953&size=lg is what a 6 MP 1.5
    cropped image can do ... in the right hands. But hey, this fellow is merely a
    respected and well published nature photog, so maybe that doesn't count.

    You can take the attitude that only 100% 36x24 is 'valid' and pay through your
    nose for it, or take the attitude that what is available at an affordable price
    works very well and work with it.

    Cheers,
    Alan.

    I's just teasing Alan. (maybe if I bought more of those cute little
    smileys so I'd always have one handy)

    I called it dreaded because of all the threads about it.

    Considering the Season, I'll forgive you this once.

    You're lucky ... usually I don't forgive til the beginning of a New Year.

    This is not the Maxxum 7D. It shows as the Dynax 7D.
