In my reviewing the D300/"D400"/D700 posts in this group I note that some high posters, i.e. presumably experienced digital photographers, continue to mention "the advantage of the DX crop factor" when referring to focal length. The inference being that the focal length of their DX lenses is in reality the lens F.L. x 1.5.

These posters are incorrect as the crop factor of 1.5 refers only to the field of view (angle) and not any magnification advantage. In other words a 200mm DX lens does not become a 300mm lens when compared with a 200mm "35mm" or FX lens.

A 200mm FX lens and a 200mm DX lens have exactly the same magnification (image size on the sensor) but some folk do not believe this and say that Photoshop proves their point. However they forget that Photoshop is scaling the image to fit the window and so the DX image looks bigger.

Ian
