"RE: DX Lenses and Crop Factor"

The short answer is the crop factor applies to both FX & DX lens.

When I shot film I had a 24mm lens for landscapes. Now that I shoot digital and use a DX camera, I bought a 16-85VR lens so the 16mm will give me the field of view that I got on the 24mm film camera.
