Welcome to Nikonians, Bob

Answer 1: You're correct that the choice of Image Size - L, M or S - applies only to JPG images.

Answer 2: Whilst NEF images are always native size, the D800 has a selection of Crop Modes which use smaller areas of the sensor, and thus produce lower NEF file sizes. The pixel dimensions of the various crop options are:

FX (the whole sensor) - 7360 x 4912
5x4 - 6144 x 4912
1.2x - 6144 x 4080
DX - 4800 x 3200

NEF file sizes can also be reduced by selecting one of the Compressed NEF options, as mentioned above.
