Does anyone know the viewfinder works with the crop mode? On the D700, it was just guideline on the viewfinder. Is it the same? Or will there be a viewfinder mask as in the D3?

"Nikon says that when the D800(E) is in its crop modes, it masks the rest of the viewfinder to tell you where your view is. This is not the case. It doesn't truly mask it with a 50 percent black like the D3 or D4 do. It just makes a box like the D700. I really wish they had added the higher-end masking."

no most likely be like the D700 it creates a box to work with and it will probable illuminate as it does in the D700 too. the things you get for an extra $3K

Has anyone seen whether the D800 will permit capturing the full frame with a DX lens attached?

if you read the comments following the pictures in the link, you'll find that some one states you can set the d700 to have masking also:

I didnít realize that turning the AF Point Illumination off (Menu item A6) would also enable the masking. Thanks ovas. Iím sure that means the D800 will do that too.

I don't have a d700 anymore, so I can't test it out, but someone should clarify this info

I have a D700 and yes, this is the way it works. With A6 'OFF' and image ares set to DX the viewfinder is masked like the D3.

I haven't heard, but it would be odd for them to take away that ability.

Same here. I had no idea. I've never turned off the AF illumination and never taken the manual out of the box.
