Pros and Cons of "non-DX" lenses for my D7000?

Hello:

My Nikon D7000 came with an 18-105 DX kit lens which I like quite a lot.

I have been reading up here on Nikon-mount lenses and I got to thinking about the future and whether or not I might want to get a full-frame camera one day.

In the coming months, I plan to buy a 100mm (ish) macro lens that could also be used for portraits, a 10-24 mm zoom telephoto lens, and a 35 or 50 mm prime lens. Eventually, I want a zoom telephoto that maxes out at 300, 400, or 500 mm, but that's a long way off yet.

If I do buy a full-frame camera, it will probably be 3 to 5 years down the road. Given that time-frame, should I consider getting all non-DX lenses today to accomodate a possible-future FF body?

If so, what drawbacks should I be aware of with regards to non-DX lenses on a DX camera such as the D7000?

Thanks!

Nikon D7000
