I recently purchased a D700 and replaced a few of my DX lenses for FX(about $3000 worth) to use with it. I did not like the quality of the auto cropped images in the D700 such as the 17-55 plus it lowered the images to 6 mpx from 12. Before, I was using a D300 which I still have and may replace soon. I was wondering if it may have been better or more cost effective to purchase a D800 when it became readily available instead of the D700 and continue to use my DX lenses with it. I understand that the resolution is so good on the D800, that auto cropped images taken with DX lenses such as the 17-55 2.8 on a D800 may look as good as the 24-70 2.8 images do on a D700.

Any thoughts?
