When using a DX lens on the D700, as pointed out in the manual and various reviews, the camera detects the DX format and creates a rectanglar box in the viewfinder showing the area covered.

But if you attach a non Nikon lens, such as any of the Sigma DC range, this does not occur and you get a vignetted image.

This is a bit disappointing but as long as you are aware of this, I suppose it is not an issue.

Now who wants to buy as those Sigma DC lenses?
