Actually I have and as I said it is just another tool. I do find it strange that there is the discussion on missing framing by using dx. Seems to me the people side of photography is going to miss framing just as often with fx as dx. Is there a thread about missing framing with a D300 , don't think so. As far as shading or blocked frame view, it is also something that with practice ceases to be a factor. Again just a tool in the bag, more like Photoshop, how many photographers actually the graphic design feature that the program contains. Or the discussion could go to zoom lens vs primes, right?
