    If not u wil have major vignetting, See post #6 in this for a clearer understanding

    but thkz guys! have a clearer understanding liao.
    Nikon D90 | SB800 | N18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 | N50mm f/1.8 | T11-16mm f2.8

    Yup I know didn't say I encouraged it. Just correcting NNB's point about 5mp in dx mode.

    Actually I'm wrong. Because canon's FF camera can't even mount the EF-S (cropped, like Nikon's DX) lenses. So there's no issue with the DX mode. Not sure about D3X though.
    Exploring! :)
