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.

Yup, the 35/1.4G ($1600) is great on DX but if you don't own or plan to own an FX camera soon, it kinda stinks to pay that much for a lens that's only the equivalent of a 50/1.8G ($200) on FX.

I think that you have it backwards (a 35/1.4G on FX is roughly the equivalent of the 50m 1.8G on DX).

However, to echo several other sentiments, there are many FX lenses that are wonderful on DX (although most suffer from being far heavier and far more expensive than lenses designed for DX). The 70-200/2.8G VRI was my favorite on DX.
