>DX mode does not crop a photo.

Well... I suspect that statement might confuse some people

Whether you call it a "crop" or not (Nikon does - I don't know about the D800 manual, but it's referred to thus on page 59 of the D700 manual), the camera will use only the central, DX-format area of the sensor to capture the image.

We're in danger of straying from George's question - again - but just let me quickly point out that DX Crop Mode (or the other crop modes) can be engaged manually irrespective of the type of lens that is mounted.
