Hi Tony,

No. I won't mount a DX lens on an FX body, but I will continue to use that DX lens on a DX body.

>breaking out the old and then obsolete D400?

Why would you think the mythical D400 will be obsolete in four or five years.
I still use my D2X(2005) on a regular basis. Often along side my D3s and D800E. I continues to work as well today as it did 8 years ago.

As I wrote above, Nikon will continue to build DX bodies for the foreseeable future. The only question is will they continue the D_00 series bodies in DX format.

The D300 is an excellent body. If you decide to add one to your kit, I am sure you will be as happy as I am with mine.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
