I did not mention the D7000 for anything.

I mean, for an image projected on a D800 sensor, if we choose all the sensor, FX, 5:4, 1.2x or DX, the parameters relating to IQ or noise are independent of the chosen area to record.

Not if you take viewing size into consideration. And if you don't, the discussion/comparison is pointless.

Are you saying that a 20x30 pixel crop out of the D800 sensor will look as good as the full frame picture?

Doesn't that depend on output medium and what you are trying to achieve?
