You say "rather spend on an FX 24-120/4 than on DX 16-85/4". However, that is a very apples to oranges comparison! the 16-85 on DX gives roughly the same coverage as the 24-120, when the 24-120 is on an FX body, on a DX body, the 24-120 gives roughly a 36-180 coverage, no where near wide enough for what the 16-85 is used for!

I totally agree that once you get into telephoto range, then you may as well buy an FX lens, as a true 300 mm telephoto designed just for DX would not be mush smaller than one designed for FX.
