And I have to keep in mind my D5100's crop factor, but doesn't that apply to DX lenses as well anyway?

You need to remember that crop factor comes from the size of the sensor and has nothing to so with the lens. If you only ever use a DX body you can learn what works for you on that format and totally disregard FX and crop factor. It won't matter to you whether the lens is DX or FX.
