You also get zoom, thus a 200mm lens acts like a 300mm lens on a DX body. Sure, I could keep it in FX and crop later, but that takes time. It is much faster to press a button, twiddle a knob and BOOM!, instant zoom.
I think this is a slight misunderstanding- you are not getting a zoom by a DX sensor- you are just getting a crop factor that makes it look like you are zoomed. If you took the same image both on FX and DX and then cropped the FX in post you would have the same result. When I first started l was under the same understanding... it was a little while before I got my head wrapped around this subject.
I don't think you are understanding him. He is saying the same thing. It is like he is saying the value of 2+2=4 and you are saying. No, 2+2=4
You are not adding anything at all- you are not getting more reach so the analogy of 2+2=4 is not applicable. In my understanding.
Did you read what he said? Last time I'm going to comment on this particular issue. He mentions that he could "crop later", just like you are saying that you could crop in on the FX shot. He isn't saying that he magically is getting more pixels or anything. Just that by switching into DX mode he gets the crop done automatically for him, when needed. Saving time in post-processing.
I still believe you are both saying the same thing of how DX mode works
You got it HappyCamp, we are saying the same thing.
So, I got a chance to use it at yesterday's wedding and it was pretty fabulous. When I twiddle to DX, I can still see the full-frame image thru the viewfinder, it just includes a DX sized rectangle overlay. Sometimes it was a smidge difficult seeing the rectangle overlay in the darkened reception room, when gunning for crowd reaction shots, but fortunately it blinks red when the shutter button is halfway pressed. Boom! Nicely framed pics of people laughing, smiling, clapping, toasting... without having to crop in post. Yesssss!
