Are there any differences in image quality in terms of sharpness, noise etc between shooting on DX mode on a D800 and cropping a full frame image to the same 1.5x image area? Any samples comparison photos ?

I could be wrong: The difference is Depth of field. In the crop mode the crop ratio time focal length is greater than FX, and focal length affects DOF. Please correct me.

There is absolutely no difference. The sensors used are the same, the image seen by the sensors is the same, its simply a matter of when the cropping is done.
