anybody got simple answers to simple Qs. Seems to be a lot of doom around about the DX on FX sensors. I just put my 17-55mm on my FM2 and, hey presto, the vignetting disappears as soon as it reaches its 'digital' or 'true' focal length, i.e. 24mm. Im not trying to outsmart anyone here, i just want answers before i splurge on a d700. So does this mean that all DX lenses will behave in the same way, in which case its no big deal, is it? I mean you just put a little marker at the 24mm or wherever the lens stops vignetting and away you go....this make sense....i mean we all bought the 17-55 knowing we were getting a 24mm-70 something, just turns into a 24mm-55mm on the d700, doesnt it? Id like to know, Rockwell seems to suggest that the whole affair drops to below the resolution of a D40 which it would if you were only limited to the centre 'DX' part of the sensor...but are you? Answers please guys. Many thanks
