55-200VR on D600

This morning I thought I'd throw my cheap 55-200 lens onto my D600 to see how the images would turn out in DX crop mode.  To my suprise it works in FX mode with just a bit of vignetting from about 60-100mm.

Since moving to FX I was thinking of selling some of my DX lenses, especially this one.  Now I think I'll keep it for a light weight general walkaround/hiking tele-zoom.

Other DX lenses I own that seem to work pretty well on my D600 is the Tokina 12-24,  and the 35 1.8.

Before unloading your DX stock,  you may want to  check and see if they may be usable on your D600.  The D800 has a couple other crop modes that make your DX lenses even more usable in FX mode.
