Hi,



I just read for the Nikon web page that the D3 supports different formats:



Compatible with three image-sensor formats FX format (36 x 24), 5:4 (30 x 24) and DX format (24 x 16)



Image size (pixels)

FX format (36 x 24): 4,256 x 2,832 [L], 3,184 x 2,120 [M], 2,128 x 1,416 [S]
5:4 (30 x 24): 3,552 x 2,832 [L], 2,656 x 2,120 [M], 1,776 x 1,416 [S]
DX format (24 x 16): 2,784 x 1,848 [L], 2,080 x 1,384 [M], 1,392 x 920 [S]




Does this mean that I can use the Tokina 10-17 lens on a D3? Have anyone tried this?

You can. However left on FX it will seriously vignette at 10mm. At 17mm it will be ok.
If you use DX you will be left with only around 5MP? images, but it will give a full fisheye view at 10mm.

Both 16mm Nikon and 15mm Sigma are better options for FX fisheye imagery.

Cheers,
Espen.
