Now let's say I want to buy a DX or FX system.

D600 + 16-35mm f/4 + Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8VC + Nikon 70-300mmm VR + 50mm f/1.8G

D7100 + Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 II + Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8VC + Nikon 55-200mmVR + 35mm f/1.8

FX system costs a whooping $1800 more.

Complete utter  rubbish. the FF lenses you picked are significantly better in each case. you should compare :

18-35 (still a lot better than tokina 11-16), 24-85 (still a lot better than tamron 17-50), 70-300 VR (nothing below this has VR), and 50 F1.8D (still too fast compared to 35 F1.8)

The point is, what if the Tokina 11-16 mm, the Tamron 17-50 mm, the 35 mm f/1.8, and the 55-200 mm are good and fast enough for you?

The 18-35 mm is $150 more expensive than the Tokina ($750 vs $600), the 24-85 mm VR is $50 less expensive (compared with VR version of the Tamron), and the 55-200 mm is $350 less expensive than the 70-300 mm ($600 vs $250), the 35 and 50 mm are about the same and the body is $800 more expensive. Total: $1250 saved with the DX system.

You are right, the FF lenses are probably all better but they are not cheaper. Which comes back to very first sentence I added to this thread: FX is more expensive but also better.

Stop comparing the 17-55mm DX, which is the most overpriced lens in Nikons history, who in the right mind would buy that lens today ?

what else have you got?

The Tamron 17-50 mm, whose mention you conveniently ignored.

In print, you barely see a half of stop difference but only when you print fairly big, you don't see a difference in 8x10 which is as big as most people print. And looking on 27'' monitor again you can barely see half of stop, and on retina iPad also you can barely see half a stop. Now looking at 100% at the monitor, you can see a more than a stop.

even more reason to use slow lenses on FX to save money then.

The very 'slow' lenses that you suggested just above are more expensive.

it will, from yoru post it is obvious that you are an irrational  fanboy. you will fight whichever side you are on to the death. once you have an FF camera, you will tell the whole how the body is cheaper than aps-c too.

And that you conveniently ignore things that don't fit your preset opinion. Isn't it funny that you describe two FX owners (or planned owners for d3xmeister) as DX fanboys? I have shot with a FX camera for the last five years (and before that for five years with a DX system) and for some strange reason I have not followed your prediction of turning from a DX to a FX fanboy.
