I have attached a figure that I clipped from the D800 User's Manual. When you look through the viewfinder of the D800 in DX mode with an FX lens attached, you will see the full viewfinder with a DX box in the center. You will capture only what is inside the DX box.
If you are using a DX lens, and you have the Crop in Auto mode, the outer area around the DX box will be grayed out. When you are using an FX lens, it will not.
