Thanks Eric, Steve etc, for the explanation, except that if I take an image with my D700 in DX crop (which I've only done for experimental purposes) at ISO 1600 and cropped to 50%, the noise appears to be far less than an image from my D7000 cropped to 50%. Perhaps it's just me or my eye sight, but could pixel density in the sensors vary noise wise, dependant on some other factors such as sensor manufacturers, processors etc?

I suppose I'm trying to see if I could justify the D800 in IQ to use as both a landscape, portrait (FX) and wildlife, birding in DX. I suppose the answer will undoubtable be to wait for a D400, as I am supposing that it's a big ask for the D800 FX camera to do all of those things equally well
