I posted this image in the macro/flower forum, but I thought folks here might be interested too. I was walking around a park with the 300/4 on my D2x looking for birds. I walked past some lovely flowers and I backed off enough to acquire focus and used the lens like a near-macro. There were bees in one of the images, so I made a huge crop to produce the image below. The image uses only 1MP of the D2x's 12+MP sensor. To me this is good proof that it's not just the number of pixels that counts, but also the quality. Any reactions or comments?
