"LCD screen"


US
          

If I use the AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 IF-ED lens on the d5200 body, how can I tell how much of the view on the LCD screen is picked up by the sensor?

I think the lens is an FX format lens, the sensor is DX format, and the monitor shows what the lens sees. Please let me know if I'm wrong about any of these assumptions.

Thanks for your help. I haven't bought any of this equipment yet, just collecting information for decision making.

The sensor supplies the liveview image so it's pretty much a 100% view. Are you thinking of the crop factor, which gives a field of view equivalent to a 152.5 mm lens?

I was thinking that the lens, which is FX format and would project an image larger than the DX sensor, would supply the view on the LCD. I would then only get part of what I saw on the LCD on the sensor. You are saying, I think, that no matter how large the image made by the lens, what I see on the LCD, is what I get on the sensor.

In Live View, the rear LCD displays exactly the same image that is recorded by the sensor. This is nothing to do with the type of lens being used.

Correct, put the same fx format lens on a fx camera, and the image will have more on the side. A dx sensor uses a smaller portion of the available image circle of an fx lens.

I proved the crop factor relationship to myself by taking a 50mm fx picture, and a 35mm dx picture. Sitting in the same spot, taking a picture of the same object at at same distance, the image was almost exactly the same. Put the 50mm on the dx and image will be a smaller center crop of what was seen on the fx frame.
