    I totally disagree. By the way, the D100 was called "superb" by the reviewer. Nikon cameras have done very, very well here in the reviews, and I that is in part why I bought the Coolpix 2100 and...

    Funny...the guy who owns the Hasselblad at work calls it Hassy too (though he spells it Hassie). I'm guessing he's about your age (young grandfather). He also refers to the cycling equipment...

    It only means that you have more room to crop. As someone who likes to crop, it means something to me. However, as I said before, I bought the XT because of the speed, size and feature advantage...

    Jeisner, you're putting words in my mouth. :) I claimed that 8MP is higher resolution than 6MP. I never said 8MP was much better, or even better than 6MP. My only goal was to refute the...

    Nope. Read more of the thread. The bulk of the thread (well, before it deteriorates, that is), is spent on a mostly thoughtful discussion about resolution, upsizing and interpolation, as well as...

    I had a dReb, but got the XT not because of the slightly higher resolution, but because the latter was smaller, lighter, faster, had more features, and wasn't crippled. Plus it was BLACK. Forget...

    Fair enough, if that's the motivation. But let me tell you, decent moon shots are not trivial - not only do you need a lens that's decent at full telephoto and maximum aperture, you also need steady...

    6 MP to 8 MP is not nothing. Sure, it's not a dramatic increase in resolution, but it gives you more room to crop. How'd you like it if you I took your sensor and trimmed 25% of the pixels off so...
