For example. Every DX lens can be used exactly for the focal length it is labeled on DX and many FX cameras. The manual that goes with the lens explains the output results.

A DX 35mm lens can not, and will not ever be able to take a picture at the same zoom length as a FX lens on a full frame camera set at 35mm, no?

Sure it will, you take a 35mm lens... put in on FX (like a D800 for purposes of MP @36MP), and crop out the outer 33% all around and voila you have a 16MP D7000 image taken with the exact same 35mm.

Nothing to do with lens, not that the lens did not change in the above scenario
