In every discussion, subthreads evolve, and this particular subthread was not really aimed at the OP (which I think is obvious to most readers). What I, and several others, objected to is the tiresome and often repeated blanket statement that FX lenses are always more expensive. They are not. Which for some reason you seem to find very offending

Except they are, unless one applies your particular exception that requires factoring in sensor performance and DOF.  And sensor performance is a moving target, the highest DX cams of today are within a stop of first gen FX cameras and have greater DR at base ISO.  Also while true, not everyone thinks shallow DOF is a "good" thing.  The only fixed "difference" that isn't a matter of taste is focal length to achieve equivalent FOV, and comparable focal length and aperture vs comparable focal length and aperture, I really don't think you'll be able to find one lens where an FX model is cheaper than it's DX equivalent.

Subthread or not you guys attacked a poster who boiled down to the least common denominator the idea that everything for a D600 is more expensive and based that on a valid, but irrelevant idea that FX is cheaper if ultimate performance is your measure.  My bottom line is your argument was off topic to this thread and is based on a subjective ideal.  If one wants to be an available light art portrait shooter, no DX probably isn't the best solution.  If some guy wants to shoot snapshots of his kid a D600 is overkill any way you slice it.
