I've recently been thinking about upgrading to a D700 (was originally going to gor for a D300, but I really want FF) from my D70s, but I find all of the lens issues a bit confusing.

I know my DX lenses won't be used to their full potential on the FX sensor, which is fine, I only have three and I'll just stick to using them on the D70, but what about 3rd party glass, like Sigma? Am I understanding it correctly to think that their DC line will work similar to a Nikkor DX, and something like a Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 EX DG would work like a normal full frame lens allowing me the full 12MP? What about a Tamron 90mm macro?
