I understand the OPs dilemma. I have been there myself. Having had three primes it meant the widest I had was 28mm not so wide on DX. I was tempted just to add Tokina 11-16 to shoot DX completely but I knew that my primes particularly would not shine that much on d7000. Fnally bought the the D600 and I am truly happy with it.

The first obvious benefit is high ISO. I shoot up to ISO 3200 without any noise reduction and no obvious penalty on colors and tones. Not possible with the D7000. The focus is a little bit better on the D600 and of course colors, tones and noise perception is better on the D600. A base ISO, the difference is not much, but of course there is subtle differences in image rendering.

I am still keeping my D7000 though, because i would not want to sell it cheaper now since prices have fallen down significantly since I bought it but also DX is advantageous in telephoto shooting. My suggestion would be to rent it if you can and compare them that way, or try them at a major outlet with your cards comparing your D7000 and d600. A least that is what I did before diving in.

Thank you for your comments and the link to your opinion. I decided to follow Reilly's suggestion and rent the camera to see what's possible. That way I can decide before making any investments. I will still keep my D7000 around, as a backup and for the times when I need reach.
