    I'm interested in the 18-300mm. But the suggested retail price is a bit too high.

    the 18-300 VR looks attractive. if the image quality is similar with that of 18-200 VR, it is definitely worth a consideration...

    With this AFS 24-85mm f3.5-4.5G VR (together with the previous new releases of the 50mm & 28mm f1.8), it sure makes the D600 FX-format now more than a rumour.

    24-85 may be a kit lens on the D600. :P

    Can a DX lens 18-300 VR be use in a FX camera?

    I have a D90 therefore I can use this. If I upgrade to a FX camera I wonder I can still use this lens.

    You can definitely use a DX lens on an FX camera but the mode will be set to DX. If you insist on using FX mode, the lens might not cover the entire sensor and usually results in bad vignetting.

    Means if you mount a DX lens on an FX body and use DX mode, the photo will be reduced resolution. If you want full resolution (aka FX mode) using a DX lens, it will have bad vignetting.
