>...I did get the D4, and love it, but did not realize until afterward that a DX lens would yield unsatisfactory results.

IMHO, DX lenses don't yield unsatisfactory results as a rule. They are generally good optical performers, but they will vignette at maximum aperture on the D4's FX sensor. If you set your menu to "Auto DX Crop" (Page 85 of the English language D4 manual) (you can do it manually as well), when a DX lens is mounted, you won't see the vignetting, just a smaller image inside a masked viewfinder.

Regards,
Arthur
