Thats why I wrote "lets just assume that a full frame camera which has exact same pixels as D7000", and didn't mention D800, AFAIK D800's pixels are (slightly?) different than D7000's.

Thanks. That makes sense. What's the real-world difference vs. the 1.2 stops of actual difference? Isn't it more than 1.2 stops?

In that case will have better high ISO performance as it will collect 2.25 times ( ~ 1.2 stops) more light (due to having sensor area of 2.25 times larger) than D7000 at same exposure. Here we are talking about same sized output.
