A friend of mine and I got into a discussion of the DX sensor crop factor. Nikon lens specs will specify the 35mm equivalent as you well know. The question he had was when a non-DX lens is used on a DX body and the crop factor is implemented, are you getting the corresponding magnification that goes with that 35mm equivalent or are you just getting a cropped view? In other words, if you put a non-DX 300mm lens on a DX body and put that same 300mm lens on a FX body, placed both of them at the same position, does what I see in the DX viewfinder look larger compared to what I see in the FX finder due to the crop factor (since it is supposed to be equivalent to a 450mm on a FX body) or am I just seeing less with no increase in magnification? I hope I phrased that properly.
