Crop Mode

First off the price point on this camera is amazing.
I was wondering if there is a 1.2 crop mode?
Owing a D800E I use the 1.2 crop mode with 25MP most of the time for wildlife but never APSC crop mode.
I find this perfect for BIF because it gives me greater FPS and some room in the viewfinder.

Apparently no. It seems to have FF mode, APS-C crop, and an auto mode that detects DA lenses and automatically crops. The good news of course is that you can set it to FF mode and what you see is what you get, crop to suit in the computer.

The three modes are FF, 1.5x crop, and auto (chooses one of the former two). Nothing in between at the moment.

So, crop mode 1:1, what is that?
Is it the mythical square format some are lusting after? But it doesn't seem to be any support for that in the viewfinder.

It is just a 24X24mm area of the senor being used. The square format soldiers insist on using a 36X36 square, which would be unsupportable with all but a select few 35mm lenses.

A 24x24 could be a cool compromise where most (probably) aps-c lenses would work and offer slightly more then the usual crop mode. But there seems to be no support for that in the viewfinder though, and that is a pity. Well at least not in any pictures I have seen yet.

The sides of the APS-C crop frame could be used for guide of 1:1 crop.
