"Buy FX lenses only" Yea or Nay?
6 months ago

The chorus of conventional wisdom wrt DX shooters buying new lenses is "Get FX lenses only, against the day when you upgrade to an FX camera." But I'd like to know how much actual agreement there is with this advice. Thus this poll:

I agree with the advice "only buy FX lenses, in case you upgrade to an FX body."

I disagree: If the lens you want happens to be DX only, then go ahead and buy & enjoy it.
