Hi, can someone pls enlighten me on this issue cos i'm such a confused newbie...

I'm planning to get a Nikon D70 body only because i already have a nikon 24-120 AF wide angle lens but the problem is the lens is not the DX series. Its just a normal auto-focus lens which i previously used on my Nikon F70 (SLR) body.

Will the lens work on the D70?? Or must i die-die use a DX series lens for DSLR?

it will work just fine. just that the field of view will be crop cos the DX format is a 1.5x crop of the full frame. (i.e 24-120 becomes 36-180 cos needs to times 1.5x). thats all.

DX cant use on full frame but full frame lens can use on DX lens.
