I have a question about how video is typically processed on a DSL and/or how we think it will be processed on the D800. I'm curious if when DSL's record video if they use the entire sensor to capture the video or if it crops the sensor and only uses a smaller portion for video capture.

I'm not looking at this from a quality of video perspective as much as a lens selection item. If a DX Camera uses the sweet spot of an FX lens b/c it's cropped it results in far less distortion but if the video uses the entire sensor, then lens selection will be rather important to get the results we want. All the distortion will be visible in the video unless there is some form of distortion control added to the video processing flow inside the camera. Unlike a still photo, I don't have a lens correction utility for video. I'm curious because this might make lenses like the 28-300 not a great choice for double duty on vacation where it's complex distortion will not be able to be addressed / corrected.

Any insight would be appreciated.
