Should i buy DX Lenses or FX lenses?
what i mean, is, i´m investing in new lenses for my D7000, and i wanted to build the "holly trinity", but i´m thinking of buying fx lenses because some day, one or two years, i´ll move to an FX body. So i have on my list the correct lenses for actual body (D7000) wich are the tokina 11-16 2.8 and nikon 17-55 2.8. but as mentioned, the wish list would be a nikon 28-70 2.8 or 16-35 f4.
I already have a nikon 80-200 2.8, nikon 35 1.8, nikon 18-105 kit.
what do you guys think, is best way?
pd: i don´t live in USA, so it is not so easy to buy and sell photography equipment.
I agree with Scott. If you have the funds, do it. I actually have been thinking about a similar situation and after saving up for months, I will be investing in a brand new lens setup next week. I also have a D7000 and have been thinking for upgrade combinations. - What I decided on was to add a Tokina 12-24mm, Nikon 24-70 and Nikon 70-200mm. I've sold my 18-200mm lens and trying to purchase FX over DX whenever I can. (the tokina won't be FX but I feel like its the best wide angle for what I'm looking for). i don't think you can go wrong with FX glass, If you are even considering it, I would say go for it. You are probably very passionate about photography and will probably be going to FX body at some point.
My 'hypothesis' is that one day, maybe 5-10 years DX will be phasing out because FX sensors will be cheaper to make, and if you want DX you can use the crop modes but, its only a theory right now.
