Re: Turn off Auto DX Crop and try the 17-55

I assume the D600 allows you to turn off Auto DX Crop in the menus. It is under Image Area in the Shooting menu on the D800E.

Then shoot with the 17-55 at different focal lengths. You can see where it crops and where it is acceptable in the corners. The 12-24mm f/4 DX was good on FX from about 18mm and longer.

Apples and Oranges but I tried this with the Sigma 17-55 OS 2.8  not pretty at any FL...


I haven't tracked used prices on the 17-55 DX or the Tamron 24-70 2.8 Non-BIM, but I am guessing this would come close to a wash? The addition of the Sigma WA on the funding side I believe should make the swap doable.  In any case enjoy the new cam and good luck on the lens reshuffle.
