Regarding your post #14, I understand the purpose of the specific illustration you were making. May I also assume that while you evidently allowed the camera to determine the FX mode for the 14-24 lens and the DX mode for the 12-24 lens, you understand that it is possible to chose the FX and DX modes manually using either one of the lenses by it's self to achieve the same effect? This is because of the unique ability of the 12-24 to provide full coverage of an FX sensor from approximately 18mm to 24mm.

This isn't possible of course with most DX lenses, but shows the flexibility of both the D3 and the D700. The only downside to the DX crop with the D3 and D700 is evident to sports shooters like myself where we often need the longer reach of the DX crop factor but also need the additional pixel resolution of the D300. From my mind, a combination of the D300 and D700 bodies is optimal!
