aimed squarely at action and fast-paced photographers who don't mind the smaller sensor, or even benefit from its extra reach.
Something is misunderstood in this.
That cropped sensor still has 20 MP and that is plenty enough for many
applications. As a publishing photographer, I need a minimum for 50%
more resolution in most all the situations.
The good pixel density and the lower MP count permit — because of the
restricted file size (even more so in jpg!) the higher rate and greater buf-
fer performance so "don't mind" is not right but "wish for" correctly is.
Last point. THERE IS NO REACH BENEFIT since there is no focal length
change in a smaller sensor… at most, a narrower AoV may be spoken of
but even that is not entirely correct; it is a cropped capture… simply.
"Reach benefit" is only obtained through use of a TC but never through sen-
sor size — using a TC is a whole different matter that I will not discuss here.

The more reach phrase came about when Nikon and others wanted us to give up our full-frame film cameras and buy into the new digital world, sensor manufacturers struggled with making larger sensors so the crop/Dx was launched.
In some ways you can understand why they pushed the more reach myth as buy a new digital camera with a "reduced field of view" would not have worked as well.
Nikon shooter is 100% correct no extra reach with a crop sensor, now unless you are cropping DX from say a D850 you can have more pixels on the subject with DX rather than a cropped FX but thats a different can of worms.
