I put my Tokina 11-16mm/f2.8 on the D600, and got a dark circular frame around the image. Is that normal? I'd thought it would switch to DX mode automatically. It was on auto setting. Something wrong with my D600? Can anyone help?

my guess is that the Auto DX switch only works with Nikon Lenses, it would have something to do with the lens identifying itself to the camera.

No need to try. Only Nikon DX lenses will trigger the auto DX crop on Nikon FX bodies. I usually turn this off.

Tokina 11-16 can still be used on a Full frame sensor at 16mm.
