I currently use a D90, and with the release of the D600 I'm really wanting to upgrade. My reasons for upgrading would mainly be IQ. I want the best image quality that I can get, while staying within my budget.

My question is, I know my current lenses will work with the D600, but how well will they work? I currently have:

Tokina 12-24

DX, will not work properly

Nikon 35mm 1.8G

DX. will not work properly

Nikon 50mm 1.8d

FX, ok

Tamron 18-200

DX, will not work properly

Nikon 28-105

FX, ok

Is it worthwhile to upgrade with these lenses?

Only FX lenses will work properly on an FX Camera like D600. Buy the Kit with the 24-85 VR lens. It's sharper than most lenses above. Sell the DX lenses on eBay, it will most likely cover the added cost of the kit lens.

All these lenses will work, but most only in DX mode! I began with roughly the same setup, but already had the 85/1.8G, the 50/1.4G, and the FX-capable AF-S 70-300 VR, but I got the Samyang 1.8/24 to complement the setup.
