Re: FX/35mm lens on a DX body?

The only difference is the imaging circle the lenses produce. DX lenses don't produce a big enough image circle for an FX sensor, but FX lenses can be used on either. In fact they only use the 'sweet spot' from the centre when used on DX.

Some FX lenses will be the best choice even on DX, but generally speaking they will be bigger and more expensive than you may need.
