I have a 70-300mm VR lens. With my D800, would there be much difference if I shoot at 300mm on DX mode compared to FX mode and crop the picture afterwards? Comments and sample shots would be appreciated, thanks.

Compared to FX, DX mode gives you less DR. May not be that important in your scenario.

DX crop mode on a D800 has the same DR as FX mode using the same camera. DX is a CROP MODE - that's why it's called "crop mode". It does not use a DX sensor, there is only one sensor in the D800 - that's a full frame high dynamic-range (DR) FX sensor.
