OK, now I've "come into the light" and switched to a D2H and a really great lens ( a 2.8 300) I need more pixels and as evidence I present the following two photos. note that the second one has a drop of water coming off the Canadians beak. If you look close you can just about make out the inverted image of the opposite shoreline, treeline and sky if it were not for the pixels. If I had more pixels I think I could have a much better water drop. Sound like a good reason to you?
