Calculating Angle of View
The D800 can be used with Nikon lenses for 35mm (135) format cameras. 
If Auto DX crop is on (
0 79) and a 35mm format lens is attached, the 
angle of view will be the same as a frame of 35mm film (35.9 × 24.0 mm); 
if a DX lens is attached, the angle of view will automatically be adjusted 
to 23.4 × 15.6 mm (DX format).
To choose an angle of view different from that of the current lens, turn 
Auto DX crop off and select from FX (36×24), 1.2× (30×20)
DX (24×16), and 5 : 4 (30×24). If a 35mm format lens is attached, the 
angle of view could be reduced by 1.5 × by selecting DX (24×16) or by 
1.2 × by selecting 1.2× (30×20), to expose a smaller area, or the aspect 
ratio could be changed by selecting 5 : 4 (30×24).
