I could see relying on a 1.2x crop on a D800/E, but not a DX or smaller crop.

DX crop on FF is still identical to APS-C with same pixel density. Again not about size of the sensor. But I do see what you mean when you describe it as a framing issue. Very different than the traditional "reach advantage" most speak of.

Not that I might not find a nice cropped shot, but the object is to see well enough to know that there's a nice shot there.

Sure but again, IQ wise there isn't a "reach advantage" to DX over FF as described. Some may even prefer the wide open vs cramped view of DX viewfinders. And you could always put a magnifying viewfinder on the FF body Bigger Live view screen too if you want to go that route. Some even find tracking a BIF easier with the big FF window. Pluses and minuses

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
