Tony Northrop on his youtube channel on photography has a video "20 things most photographers get wrong" at One of the things he mentions is using FX lenses on DX bodies. I'm not completely convinced by his argument but it is worth checking out. I have a couple of FX lenses I use with my D7100 but Tony claims that this causes a loss of resolution compared to using DX lenses on a DX body. I'm happy with my results though.

Because this thread has been resurrected, it may be needed to counter Tony's claims once more. Everything I've heard from him in that department makes no sense whatsoever and will only confuse people. Ignore.
