D800 will automatically crop the picture when using DX lens, so this will not happen.
All your DX lenses will work 100% with the D800.

FX lenses will work best.
DX lenses will work but the image will be cropped, so you will lose some resolution. Alternatively, you can turn the cropping off but you will get some vignetting.

Don't forget even with DX lenses the D800 still gives approx 16MP resolution. That's enough for most applications really.

Like you and APY, I'm also going from my D90 to the D800. I all ready have the 50mm, 105mm, 35-70mm/2.8, and the 70-400mm. I will keep my D90 and 18-200mm lens for backup.

I am also going from a D90 to the D800. Luckily, most of my current lenses are FX. You can use your current DX lenses for now and upgrade later. The faster and sharper FX glass will make a big difference. I love my 14-24, 24-70, and 70-200 lenses.

At least if you have to use DX lenses, the D800 is probably the best camera to do so with. ~16 MP is not nearly as high as 36mp, but it's still higher than my D700 (12mp).

Trying to use a DX lens on a FX body is rather silly generally speaking. Buy a cheaper DX if those are the lenses you are primarily going to use. I ordered a D800 (hope I get before July) and my lens selection is going to be far more limited although I think it's worth it. 50, 24-70, and 105. I'll get more someday but that'll be enough for what i want to do.

I'll have to sell my 38 1.8, My tokina 11-16, and my 55-200--All fine lenses in their own right. That leaves me with a 50 1.4G, and a 70-200 VR.

And the 105 2.0 DC I just ordered. There's others I'll want, but the DC may not be around forever, so I got mine now.
