In their defense, out in nature, there is often not time to change lenses and the R5 let me crop in and take shots that I would not have gotten.Agreed. I'm not a professional but I've printed and sold 8x10" bird photos from very tight crops taken from a 24mp Canon 800D. Hell I have a friend who got back into photography recently and is doing event and portrait shoots with a humble 12mp Canon 450D.
The fact that people are making livings off 20mp cameras like the 1DX and R6 must be mindblowing to some people here. It's the photo that makes the photo, not the megapixels.
