It varies from lens to lens. The 12-24mm DX covers the FX frame from about 17-18mm upwards, but many DX lenses do not cover the FX frame at ANY focal length. The 18-200mm DX is one such.Even if the coverage is there, you'd be using the lens in a way that wasn't intended, and image quality may fall away.
