    sorry for the dumb???
    but how exactly do you critically compare two images that are on the web as 800x600 max jpg's?

    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Hi Guy,

    Those are exactly the two models we're considering for my wife's next wedding cameras. She may switch to all Oly or all Nikon.

    Cheers,

    Right, and one also loses some resolution then to diffraction. To me, it makes sense for one to first figure out what kind of depth of field is usually most important to him or her, then pick the format, then pick the camera. People who really love short DOF obviously have great options with FF cameras like the 5D, D3, etc. (or cameras with even larger sensors).

    --------------------------------

    On the other topic... It's true that downsized JPEGs make it hard to compare pictures but 100% crops can sometimes be even more revealing of differences than a good print. In fact, 100% crops sometimes reveal differences that won't even be noticed in most prints.
