One response:


If you're using a Nikon, yes. The camera will shift to “DX crop mode≵ mode, to account for the smaller image circle of the DX lens, and the smaller frame will be indicated with thin black lines in the viewfinder. Otherwise, everything will be as with an FX-lens.

For instance, the 36 megapixel Nikon D800 will produce 15-megapixel images in “DX crop mode”.

If you're using Canon, you're out of look, Canon DX lenses (designated EF-S) fill not mount on a Canon frull frame body.
