When using a FX lens, is there any difference in image magnification between setting the shooting menu "Image Area" to a 1.2X or DX setting versus shooting at the normal setting and just cropping the image to the same size in post processing? Will the amount of pixels be the same in either finished image?

Hope I have explained this clearly. Thanks.
