Indeed what Brian said is true. Your DX body simply cropped the image; it did not change the focal length of the lens. The D800 has the ability to crop as well, either automatically in camera or of course you can do it in post-processing, so you will not lose any functionality.

However, if you want to use all 36MP on the same type of subject you were accustomed to shooting with your DX camera, you will need a 300mm lens to get the same field of view, and you will find depth of field is about a stop less.
