Thanks very much for your posts and the info at your blog. I had a chance to look at a D800 yesterday and am curious why you would choose to crop in the camera as opposed to cropping on your computer. Since the image in the viewfinder is exactly the same in FF or DX mode (only the black format outline changes in the VF), I don;t see any advantage to cropping in camera - certainly doesn't help you focus any better since the image is exactly the same (guess you could use LV and zoom in, but that;s not practical in many cases).
So what is your thinking on that subject? I am "replacing" my D7000, which I use primarily for long shots (with my D700 on the other shoulder for closer shots), and was thinking that the VF would actually change with crop mode (okay, so I wasn't actually "thinking..") But in any curious, any thoughts on that?
