    wow now I understand full frame and then there's FX, DX, all that gets lost on me. Can probably tell how much of a technical photographer one is.

    FX is just Nikon's designation of full 135 frame digital and DX is just the 1.5x crop version.

    It's probably better just to focus on the photography itself and put less emphasis on the equipment.

    ideally it will be great to just focus on photography. but some basic knowledge is required so that one knows what wide angle, normal or tele is referred too. FX and DX have confuse the lines between these. a 24mm is wide on FX but just normal in DX...and the photos will look different.

    then again,,,sometimes ignorance is bliss...just use what you have...

    "expensive"

    Maybe, just remembering that 24mm is smaller than 85mm and that it is smaller than 200mm will be enough for those who wish to concentrate on the photography and leave the calculations to those who desire to know the precise effective focal length, if that's possible.
