All FX cameras (thus far) have DX crop mode, but you can use the DX lenses in FX mode if you want, and are willing to crop the image yourself.
Then, in his long term test, Matthew Richards repeats the assertion that first version of the 18-200 VR lens had a different type of VR than the MK II version of the lens. As discussed on this forum when the superzoom test was published, that assertion is incorrect. It shows that the staff don't know the features of their own equipment, and don't pay attention to their own forums.
I'll be cancelling my subscription PDQ.
If this is the bigest problem in your life, you need to be greatfull. Cut these people some slack, they are just starting off and have to get the kinks out. FYI, all the US photomagazines and photo websites use aps-c and full frame because dx and fx are nikon terms only. As nikonians we know what they mean and what dx and fx are.We don't need to have it spoonfed to us.
I haven't seen an issue of this mag yet, but if it is anything like their version for canon users, i expect it will be first rate.
