Forgive a potentially stupid question:

When shooting the D800 in DX mode with a DX lens, does one still retain the ISO performance you get with the FX sensor? While it would be compromising the D800's ultimate high res abilities, it would certainly be an advantage to be able to shoot ~16MP DX images while still having usable ISO3200-6400+ (which I certainly don't have on my D300).

I assume there are more complicated physics at hand that don't allow this to happen though.
