    The crop capability on my NEX-7 is just incredible.....Canon FD 135/2.8 @ 4.0, ISO400, 1/4000

    I know, just don't call it crop factor, because that one is 1,5. What you mean is crop capability. ;)

    Hm... I think that might be a bridge too far there, roundball. ;)

    Sorry, I was just implying that you may have cropped that last one a little bit too much. The details of the bird are pretty much gone. But I thought the first two you posted were awesome!

    Got it...yes, it was a very long shot even with the 200mm.
    The 300 or 400 would have been much better but I didn't have either of them with me...

    The last photo is like playing Where's Waldo. It took me awhile to find the bird.

    LOL...he's out there...I just never cease to be amazed at the cropping capability of the NEX-7.

    As was pointed out earlier there is detail loss, but for the purpose of the thread....(and the probability that I didn't have much fine detail to begin with at that distance without a tripod)...the cropped up image clearly shows the sunflower seed in it's beak.

    The NEX-7 has brought my entire original Canon FD lens inventory back into play, and does so beyond what I was able to produce back in film days.
    After a couple decades away from photography, I recently retired and for only the cost of a couple NEX-7 bodies, I'm fully reengaged.
    Got the basics figured out, but it'll take me a while to get more up to speed on all the NEX-7 capabilities...just scratching the surface.
