Yes, the D700 (like all Nikon's FX DSLR's so far) has the option of switching automatically to its DX Crop Mode when a DX Nikkor is mounted.

Note that the auto-switching may not always work with 3rd-party lenses as it relies on the coding of a chip in the lens to tell the camera it's for the DX format. You can always switch manually via the menus
