Customer Question
Just bought a Nikon D610...
Just bought a Nikon D610 and discovered my DX lens was not sufficient for a full frame sensor. Have since bought an AF-S Nikkor 85mm 1:1.8 G lens, but the image the camera takes is not the same crop I see in the viewfinder. What am I doing wrong?

Hello there and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. I am an engineer with over 30 years of electrical and electronic training, repair and installation experience. I will try and answer your question accurately and precisely so that we can get you on your way.
Ok, just to be sure, the new lens is not also a DX lens? Look at the lens element that is closest to the camera. It should be way bigger in diameter than the one on your DX lens.
Is that the case?
Let me know.

I see where the DX letters are on the old lens. The new lens does not have anything stamped in that area. The letter G is the only thing I can see to designate a series.
Camera and Video Technician: Steve G., Engineer replied 3 years ago
Ok, then that sounds like an FX full frame lens.
Go into the Shooting Menu, look for 'Image Area'.
Auto DX Crop should be ON
Choose Image Area should be FX.
Check that and let me know.
