Whenever I read that someone needs more "reach", so prefers not to use a full frame camera with the same size lens, I shake my head.

What's to headshake?  A 300mm on a K-5 has more reach than a 300mm on a D600... not because the format is smaller, but because the pixel density is higher.  I don't think there's anything wrong with saying that my Q has more reach than my K10D, because with the latter, I was taking lots of bird shots that ended up getting cropped down to the size of the Q's sensor, and at that size it has less than two megapixels.
