PMA 2007 reportedly presented the new Nikon D3x, carrying 18 megapixels and a 1.1 crop factor.

What is not clear is how DX lenses will work with that crop factor. Will there be a function like on the D2Xs, which dims the edges of the view-screen and restricts the sensor to the center of the focused image? Or, will the DX lenses be "not recommended" for the D3x?

Does anyone feel dismayed who invested in DX lenses, based on Nikon's earlier claim that they would stick to the D1/D2 image size?
