Nikon's DX series lenses are designed to work only on DSLR models with sensors smaller than 35mm film (and that's all Nikon DSLR models for right this minute).

So, if you tried to use a DX lens on a 35mm camera, you'd get probably get vignetting (since the image circle wouldn't be large enough to cover the film).
