Hi, I know this has been discussed before, but I have changed my mind about something. Two friends at my Photographic Club have recently bought themselves FF bodied cameras with very high pixel counts. Well one, who is a well respected landscape photographer, told me that he has found his quite a difficult camera to use. Due to the very high resolution, he is concerned that it is all too easy to get soft images due to camera shake, even with stabilisation switched on. Also he thinks defraction problems seem to set in earlier than on his APS-C body. Advice given was to try to always use a tripod and use 'mirror up' to reduce shakes. The advice was also to use inverse of double the focal length as the shutter speed, i.e. 1/200th second for a 100mm lens when hand held. This is just his observations of course and may not be typical of every user's experience. It may also be true that he is perhaps using less suitable lenses. Well, I use my camera for just about everything from landscapes to street photography and holidays, so I do not want to have to cart a tripod everywhere and take all of these precautions to be sure of a good image. I also want to be able to use my legacy lenses. Perhaps then around 16 to 20Mp is a better compromise, such as the D600, 5D Mk 3 and other similar Marks. So I am hoping that the Pentax body, when it comes, will be a little more restrained. The Nikon D4 for example has only 16.2Mp, yet is is one of the best cameras around and the results are spectacular. Perhaps Pixels are not the only measure of good. What do you think?
