Again, you are misinterpreting Nikon cropping feature.

By your logic, when the camera uses this feat, it is disabling the outter portion if the sensor thus turning it into a DX/1.2X size sensor. This is absolutely INCORRECT.

The camera is still utilizing the ENTIRE 35mm sensor. All it's doing is cropping the OUTPUT files. Because it's still using the entire sensor, you are not loosing any DR or noise performance.

Please read into this before you give false information. If you actually own the camera, a simple test will reveal this.
