Just a quick question. I noticed that the review on cameralabs for this lens was done on a full frame camera. I assume that the clarity of the corner images would improve when used with a cropped sensor camera correct? Thanks a ton for your help.

The review was done with a D2X which, despite being a professional model is not full-frame. It uses a cropped DX sensor. The D3 is Nikon's only FF DSLR...

EDIT: this is rubbish :arrow: Also the 18-200mm can only be used on DX bodies. :?

Nope: you can easily use all DX-lenses on the D3. The camera automatically crops to DX.
Only disadvantage: you only get 5MPix images on the D3. On a (hypothetical) D3x with a new 24MPix FX sensor (due out 2008 :wink: ) you would get a perfect 10MPix crop :shock:
BUT: you can aso switch off the auto-cropping feature of the D3 and shoot 5:4 or even FX with every lens!
Juts look at this picture I've taken with 5:4 crop on a Nikon D3 with a Nikkor VR 18-200mm DX set to 170mm. There is some light-fall-off in the corners. But not bad...

Ahh, my mistake. Forgot about that feature, thanks Thomas.

Already speculating about the D3X? 24MPix would be nice though - not that I'd ever have the money to buy it!!!:D
