I was not going to get the D800 but due to some posts here I am rethinking the decision. Some of David Busch's comments about the crops got me experimenting and thinking. Also, for the first time ever, the D800 price in India is better than the price in the U.S .
I am finally going to sell some glass that I rarely use to cover the cost. So the question: Has anyone tried the 17-55 2.8 in the DX crop mode or can someone please give it a try? I have a 'mint' copy and it is my last DX lens. My wife and son prefer the 16-85vr . I was going to sell it but always really liked the lens and the range. In the crop mode on the D3S and D700 the MP was too small for the type of shots I used it for.
