This came up in conversation with a friend and and I want to make sure I am correct with respect to the 1.5 crop factor on standard vs. DX lenses.

If for example I am using my 80-200mm f2.8 AF-S lens on my D200 it is the equivalent of a 120-300mm lens. If however Im am using a 18-200mm DX VR lens, it is 18-200 still because of the DX lens factor, or are they both subject to the 1.5 crop? I.E. the 18-200 acts as a 36-300.

I think I ended up confusing myself on this and just want to be sure.

Cheers,
