You'll get a whole lot more reach with a DX camera...

"Reach" is not related to whether a camera is FX or DX, only to the pixel density of the sensor.  Some DX cameras have greater reach than some FX cameras, some less.  A denser pixel arrangement results in sharper pictures (all else being equal), which is all "reach" is.

The D7000 has a 16.8 MP sensor.  The 24MP D600 has a 16.2 MP sensor (in DX mode).  The 36MP D800 has a 24.2 MP sensor (in DX mode).

On this basis, the DX D7000 has (fractionally) more "reach" than the FX D600 but a lot less "reach" than an FX D800.
