IQ of the 12-24 is marginal on the DX cameras.

I disagree with you, and so does Bjørn Rørslett.

I used this lens on a D2x, and found it quite good.

To put this lens on a FX camera that will reduce the low quality image to a 5MP file is not a wise move.

Not sure I understand your logic here. If you use the lens at focal lengths where it doesn't vignette on FX, a D700 is less demanding of a lens than a DX camera of the same mp. The photo sites on a 12 mp FX sensor are larger than on a 12 mp DX sensor. So, lens resolution is not as critical.
