Tom, I recently tried my Sigma 50-150 2.8 HSM in DX mode, view this thread:

Here are a few of my favorite things...

Wow, nice pictures! Thanks for posting them, and putting up that link. That is one cute, spunky-looking guy you'[ve got there. Pretty amazing hair, too, he's lucky. Did he get that from you? The Sigma lens looks quite good here, and overall I'd say that the DX size pics aren't gathering any dust.

And Mick, I really like that shot of Popeye village. I had to look twice, it's like an illusion. The detail is remarkable.

Overall, it seems like the D800 can be shot in DX mode with no fear. That's good. It saves a lot of trouble in PP from cropping etc, and doesn't fill up the cards nearly as fast. Nor the hard disks. And lets you shoot faster sequences. It's great for shots where you want a really good image, like the ones you guys have posted, but don't necessarily need every blade of grass in sharp relief. I could be wrong, but the IQ and noise level seem superior to the D7000 pictures I've seen.

I think I love this DX mode feature. It is in fact like having two cameras in one. I'm still excited and thriledl at having this camera. It is fabulous.
