Well im planning on using a 70-200 f4 L and that will be my walkaround lens assuming you have an SLR, and if your pics are decently sized then cropping shouldnt kill.

I nearly always end up cropping and rotating photos - most of the ones I take are not perfectly composed and I often seem to hold the camera at a degree or two off level.

My feeling is that as long as the image is of high enough resolution, cropping is not a problem and can even be better than using high levels of zoom (which compresses distance and magnifies any camera shake).

Another advantage of cropping images is that you can take your time over the composition, something not always possible when out and about and there are only a few seconds available to acquire the image.

I crop a lot of my photos back, especially when I get other objects in the shot.
