You mustn't be activating it correctly. See page 64 of manual. When it's activated, a 1.3x indicator as well as a 1.3x frame shows up in the viewfinder.

I see what is happening, the menus say you can use the AE-L AF-L button to change back and forth 1.3 and DX, when I press it and rotate the front thumbwheel, the 1.3x goes off in the viewfinder, but when i focus it comes back on (to what the shooting menu is set to.).  Are you only able to change it from the shooting menu then, the custom button function button indicate differently...

Looking for a quicker way to activate (that sticks lol), anyone else use any custom buttons that actually work???
