FX or DX lens
Feb 9, 2012

Hi every one

Ok it might be silly asking this one but I need to know.

Can I buy FX lens for my DX body - D300 to be precise. I am confused with the DX and FX lenses and their interchangeability. I want to upgrade to full frame in near future but for the time being I wish to buy nikkor 17-55 AF-S DX. If I upgrade to FX body I wish to keep this lens without compromising on quality. Is this possible or should I look for FX lens but will that work in DX body?

I was little confused before searching for the answers on the web but after reading few articles I ended up even more confused than before.

Your help will be much appreciated.
