I don't care if it's a hindrance or not. I see what's in my viewfinder then work from there and i'm perfectly happy with what i get.
What i want to do, is to understand how this whole thing works.
If i use a "DX" lens on a Fx sensor. However when i get the results, and crop the usable image, it's 1.5 factor in. So a DX 18-105 lens on a Fx frame will have an "effective" range of 27-157. This meant that the FoV is less than a 18-105 lens made for Fx frame. (one gets more image on a Fx sensor compared to DX sensor at same focal length.)
So in fact, Dx is the cheap version made for public consumption (cash cow). aye? Obviously the camera manufacturers could shift their entire production to Dx and it won't make a difference, except piss off all their existing users. Correct too?
Oh yes, and the people who keep talking about extra reach and all that...
