I just had to try the 12-24dx on the D700 and I was amazed at how well the test shots came out. I was only able to use the lens starting at about 16mm; I can live with that. I printed them at 4 x 6 and again I was surprised how well they turn out. My question is how much data am I losing? I think that I read when using a dx lens on the FF D700 that the pixel count drops to around 4 megs from the 12 meg using other than dx lenses. Still, 4 megs should be large enough to print at least a 8 x 10 print I would guess?
