Re: Help!... thinking of upgrading to FX but have DX lenses

You haven't said why you want to switch to FX. Your lens are not wide angle so an upgrade to the D7100 would be perfect for you. It'll blow your D90 away.

On FX your 50mm lens would be the equivalent of your 35mm lens on DX so you can just sell your 35mm.

If you then wanted to have the equivalent of your 50mm then the 85mm f1.8 is arguably one of the best lens made. The money you get for your 35mm will go towards it.

Your 18-105 will not be needed on your FX camera and you will not get a lot of money for it. I would suggest as a replacement either the 24-85, 24-120 f4 or for more vesatility the 28-300. Personally I prefer the 24-85. To get you going for minimum cost you could also consider the 28-105d zoom. You can only get it second hand but its a great lens although it does not have VR.
