I just learned yesterday that the 10.5 fisheye is basically the same lens as the 16mm fisheye (FX) and that the difference is due to the crop factor because the 10.5 is labeled a "DX". When I install my 10.5 on my D800 of course it knows it's a DX lens and shows the crop box accordingly. My question is: How can I take advantage of more of the frame in the D800? Is there a way to defeat the auto DX sensing and show more of the field of view in the D800?

I'll be playing with this today, but any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Tom
