This topic has probably been raised before. But Mongo has a very specific question. So, please do not tell him about the effects or that there is no point in doing that etc. Mongo knows all of that.
Mongo does not won an FX body yet, so has to ask the question of those who have DX lenses and an FX body on hand.
Mongo has read many articles about this and not one of them has said that the FX camera will not allow you to take a image in FX mode with a DX lens attached. Indeed, they go on to talk about all the results. The only inference one can draw from that is that the FX body will let you take an image in FX mode with a DX lens attached (even if it looks like rubbish - which is of no concern or relevance to Mongo's purpose).
So, very simple and straight forward question. Can you verify that the FX body will let you shoot in FX mode with a DX lens attached ???? or will the camera always switch itself to DX mode in that case ??? if so, is there any way to override the camera to force it to shoot in FX mode with a DX lens attached.
Mongo would love a “yes” or “No” answer (or 3 of them for what now appears to be 3 questions) and which FX body you used (oops ...potentially 4 questions ....Hmmm...)
