I did the same: upgraded from D7000 to full frame and it was a series of expensive mistakes.

to which full frame camera did you upgrade and why do you calll it a mistake? I think it gives you more coverage if you go fullframe. But there are performance issues at the corners regarding CA esp with regard to zeiss lenses.

Shoot the kit and (excellent!) 35/1.8 (or 50 which is FX). After that, 70-200/2.8 and be amazed. Then slowly, no rush, build yourself a FX gold-ring f2.8 collection.

Don't be temped by exotic DX lenses, you'll be sorry some day. The only one I kept is the 17-55/2.8 for my D7000 which I have as a backup and for the rare cases when I have a second shooter (girlfriend usually).
