DX mode does not crop a photo. The image circle on the sensor cast by a DX lens is smaller than the image circle cast by an FX lens. Therefore, the image circle activates and smaller part of the sensor. The D800 shooting a DX lens produces a 15.3mp file as a result, instead of the 36mp file it would produce with an FX lens.
