Shouldn't Nikon include 1.2x crop in all its FFs...?

Re: Shouldn't Nikon include 1.2x crop in all its FFs...?

Totaly agree. 1.2X crop mode on D800/E is great for telephoto lenses. 25MP at 5fps is very useful. It's a pity it doesn't make 6fps with a grip in 1.2x mode.

Turn off AF-point-illumination, and the area outside the 1.2x crop area would grey out. If you use VF virtual horizon, the bars in the VF for virtual horizon would be displayed very nicely in the greyed-out area and very visible.

I don't care about saving card or disk space, I can crop in post and save that. But the extra 1 fps of 30x20 mode (without grip) causes me to use it for birding situations. Very handy and one button (AE/AF-L) + dial toggle from 30x20 to 36x24 back and forth is brilliant.
