I have noticed where some of the D700 set up guides suggest setting the image area to "Auto DX Crop". I have a few DX lenses including the 12-24mm DX but mainly I am using none DX lenses. My question is when should I be using the Auto DX Crop and what does it do? Does the auto DX setting work only when a DX lens is mounted and goes back to a FX mode when a non DX lens in mounted? Do I need to manualy reset the image area when ever I change from a non DX to a DX lens? Thanks.
