Or our original pic covered 16mp but now that same view only covers 4 MP with the 10 mm lens.
Yeah, I get all that, but are you seriously saying that you want to use a 9mm (or even 15mm) lens with tons of cropping instead of using a longer lens???

For wildlife photography - you need big lenses (not 9mm or 15mm) AND you need to get close. Cropping, even on high pixel count cameras, is no substitute for the correct technique.

Lets leave out all the terrible posing errors for now which I am sure you noticed.
Err - what posing errors on the royal wedding? , and what shots were taken with the wrong camera? Were you doing a professional shoot for the unfortunate couple? Sorry, not in tune with this at all!
