    And ya...I thought you are the expert based on your past postings.

    DOF also different, but that's tougher to explain...

    I think this is a very good picture of DX and FX.



    Imagine DOF and FOV with this.

    My little help.




    I don't own a D700 but I heard one can change the mode to use a DX lens and shoot at 5mp, correct?

    That's affirmative! You are actually using the centre portion of the sensor and it's good enough for a 4R printout or computer screen viewing
    Photography? It's all in your mind...

    Actually when you switch to the DX mode it performs just like a DX cam hence you can use DX lenses minus the free vignetting lah. The only down side is the lower Mp as you've mentioned. Guess that's why they created cams with cropped sensor size so you still get 12mp with smaller FOV instead of 5mp if using the FX body

    And the other side of the story is...

    when you use a FX lens on a DX camera, you are basically given the FX image circle, but only using a smaller portion of it with the DX sensor...



    Don't shoot me; I know I'm right.

    Got!!
    In Windows PC, when you right-click on a drive, then select "format...", one of the options will come out 'Full/Quick', am I right??
    ok ok OT already.
    I anyhow hantam the name to fit my explanation for "medium format" being equal to DX
