When I place a DX lens on the D800 with autocrop on, I get the nice grayed out area around the picture I am going to take. With autocrop off, I get a much wider view which I can crop.

On the D800 with a DX lens is it better to have autocrop on or off? Also, what does autocrop really do in this case? Still trying to understand this from the manual as well.
