> hi all I have a d300 and was wondering if the image size
>in the d800 viewfinder in dx mode would equal the d300 image
>size? Also would a eyepiece magnafier work well on the d800 in
>that situation to equal the d300? thanks tom

I have attached a figure that I clipped from the D800 User's Manual. When you look through the viewfinder of the D800 in DX mode with an FX lens attached, you will see the full viewfinder with a DX box in the center. You will capture only what is inside the DX box.

If you are using a DX lens, and you have the Crop in Auto mode, the outer area around the DX box will be grayed out. When you are using an FX lens, it will not.
