Thanks. I have a library of D700 books, by Darrell Young who says very little about the pros and cons, Simon Stafford who is not over keen on DX mode and J Dennis Thomas who is rather more upbeat. Unfortunately I do not have D Busch's book. I judge their keeness by the length of their discussion of the option. J Dennis Thomas sides that the use of a DX lens on an FX body gives improved results over an FX lens used in DX mode, for many reasons that I do understand. I have no DX lenses however.
Of course, the D800 will perform differently with a far more useable size image. Therefore, hopefully the D800 will be a more practical tool for DX mode with FX lenses. We will have to wait and see what the posters think when they start sharing their D800 data. Personally, I can't wait and if the D300s replacement arrives I will be able to make some real time comparisons.
