Even when I had a DX camera.

It just seemed to make sense as I always intended to go FF.


"Buy FX lenses if you have a DX camera because you're going to go FF" never made sense to me. The FX lens will have a different angle of view on FX than on DX, and thus will occupy a different niche in one's camera bag.

I buy FX lenses for my DX camera because I like the focal lengths of those FX lenses on a DX body. If I were to switch to an FX body, I wouldn't like my current FX lenses nearly as well, and would want to trade most of them in.
