I have both lenses and there is little difference optically but the FX version is heavier..

In Australia the FX version is very expensive and not worth it.

I leave it on my wife's D7500 where it gets little use.



For fun, I tried the DX version with a Kenko 1.4X TC on my old D600, and it worked like a dream. It is utterly sharp at 135mm (better than the Zeiss 135mm primes), according to Lenstip's review, but that was the only thing they really liked with the DX version, preferring the FX any day of the week.

But as it becomes an f/9.0 @420mm (with the TC on) you really need good light.
