"You wish" kind of a wish - but it would be a great goodwill gesture from Nikon to add this via a firmware upgrade to the current FX DSLRs (all of which are not going to be replaced any time soon) a feature that is being provided via the 1.3x crop on D7100. It should be relatively straightforward to provide the firmware upgrade (except may be the greying out of the viewfinder which if not possible via firmware - can be acceptable if not present in the 1.3x crop). It would also be a win for Nikon - as it might boost the sales of the new Nikon 80-400mm AF-S VR (effectively could be 80-800mm equivalent) as well as quieten the anger in some of the D600/D800 customers.

Anyone else would be interested in this?
