FF cameras like d600/800 have 14-bit A/D converters per color (D7000 has 12-bit), but JPG is 24-bit total (8-bit per color). What this boils down to is that color space of raw file is larger than that of JPG. If you process raw from your d7000 you will get more accurate colors than you get in JPG, but you will not get greater dynamic range compared to jpg from same camera.

Small correction. I believe the D7000 has a 14-bit A/D converter.
