Hi

I've Nikoscoped and am still confused. I have a D200 and 17-55mm f/2.8 DX lens. My question is:

is my D200 and 17-55mm DX combo giving me the same field of view when I look thru the viewfinder as (for the sake of argument) if I were to look through the viewfinder of a 17-55mm FX lens on an FX body?

Or when I look thru my D200 at 17mm, am I actually getting a 25.5mm field of view, from the perspective of a full-frame sensor body?

Guessing this would be really straight forward to solve if I still had my old film gear!

Really appreciate your insights.

Paul
