How often do you use DX image area on your FX camera?
Apr 30, 2012

One of the things I looked forward to with my new D800 was the fact that I could use the DX image area to mimic my old cameras, which all have been DX.

However, so far, I do not think I used DX image area even once in a "real life" situation. It seems the "extra reach" is very similar to digital zoom and therefore pretty pointless, as you equally well can crop afterwards.

Is the smaller file size the only advantage of DX mode, or are there other ones?
