If you own a non-Nikon DX lens and you expect the camera to automatically switch to DX crop when you switch to that lens, think again. I have a Tokina 11-16mm that Ken Rockwell raves about. I have used it with great success with the D300. The jury is still out on using it with the D800. I have to manually switch to DX crop when I switch to it on the D800.

I also discovered today that Adobe Camera RAW 6.7 does not support lens correction profile for the D800/Tokina 11-16mm combination. Bummer!

Update: I may have spoken too soon. I just finished merging 7 HDR frames taken with the D800 and Tokina 11-16mm in FX mode. The details are superb even using f14 and ISO 160. I just do my own crop within the vignette boundary. Great stuff!
