I'm moving up from a D90 to a D600 so I'm selling off a few DX lenses. I know that the 35 won't operate as a FF but since I'll get less than $100 for it, does it make sense to hold on to it for certain situations? I love it on my D90 but will it still produce on a D600. The rest of my kit will be the Nikon 28-300, 50 1.8, 85 1.8, Sigma 10-20 (DX but will replace eventually), and the Tamron 24-70 2.8.

It works if you shoot wider than 2.8 and if you don't focus at far distances (>10m). As long as you keep it at that, the slight vignetting is very easy to remove. Depends what you're gonna use it for really. For portraits, close ups and low light it's fine.

Samples below, full frame no cropping, shot at f1.8. Reduced vignetting in post:
