So the "cropability" of an 18MP image from the APS-C 7D is better than the "cropability" of a 12.8MP image from a FF 5D. But it's more a result of the FF vs. APS-C thing, not so much from the 18MP...

The 5DMkII is 21MP. The original 5D is 12.8MP. Either way, they're both 'Full Frame' dSLRs while the 7D is an APS-C dSLR, and at 18MP, yes, its images would stand up to more cropping than either the...

If I'm not mistaken, one is a 'FF' dSLR and the other is an APS-C dSLR. That would be a bigger difference than the difference in the resolution.

Not so much. The 18MP image from a T2i has a resolution of 5184x3456, while the 12MP image from a D90 is 4288x2848. That's a difference of about 20%, or the difference between a 100mm lens and a...

The 60D and D7000 are considerably more expensive, and add layers of complexity that won't be of immediate benefit to you. As I've said, the most important factor in your decision should be the...

The D90 is a fine camera, but there are others that could do as well, possibly better, while costing about the same. Off the top of my head, the Canon T1i and T2i, the Pentax K-r, and any of the Sony...

Any flash would illuminate the foreground much more than the background. In that particular shot, a flash would make the horse and rider brighter, though since the horse is a bay, it probably...

That wasn't a show, it was a clinic, so I could get inside the ring. At a competition, that would not be permitted. I used a Nikon D90 and a Nikon 85/1.8. At a show, you'd need something longer to...

But a 50mm lens won't do what the OP wants. A 77mm lens will barely do it.

But, yes, if...
