I am now seriously looking at the advantages to carrying both bodies (especially since I have not had the D300 long), but I last year I had sold pretty much the entire line of prime DX lenses just to think about re-buying the 17-55mm, until now?

What would be a first best prime lens for a DX/FX body combo? The 24-70mm 2.8 (which seems to be sold out everywhere)?

That makes it a 36-105mm on the DX and 24-70mm on the FX where the 17-55 looks like it comes out to 26mm at the wide range on both bodies. I am trying to look down the road and not buy glass I am not going to want to use on both bodies, or should I be looking at wide glass 14-24mm just for the FX and something like 24-70mm and the 70-200mm 2.8 for the DX?

I assume I wouldn't want to use the 14-24mm on the DX body and probably wouldn't want to use the 12-24mm on the FX body?

Right now, I need one good prime lens for a wedding in a few weeks to go on my D300. Was just about to pull the trigger next week for the 17-55mm DX until I now find out I have a good chance of getting the D700 too??? Thanks for the suggestions.
