OT: dumb terms

"100% crop" is a dumb term, no doubt, but it is common vocabulary at this point. What it actually means is that no resizing has been done. It has nothing to do with cropping at all. Although generally since the file size is so large at 100%, a small part of the image is cropped out before posting.

"ISO" is also a dumb term for what should be called "sensitivity".

Thanks for the reply Pentaxpoke

can seem a confusing term.

If I were to crop the photo 50% my line of thinking means half the photo.

So the most acurate way to make a 100% crop would be to enlarge the image to its 100% size and then take a cropped section?

That's correct.

Then I would really recommend the 18-250 for your outdoor sports, and use that lovely 31 for indoor. I have posted tests here that show the IQ on the 18-250 is excellent, and to see the difference between that and the DA*50-135, you have to go to 100% crop.
I really would like to stick with the prime lenses, DA* or limited. Also if an indoor sport needs to be shot than a fast lens. So................. a prime, DA* ltd,FAST.
