Simple question. When using the D800 in DX crop mode, do we lose IQ or only MP?

You only lose MP. You can also choose between S, M or L sizes on ANY of the 4 crop modes the D800 offers (FX, DX, 1.2X or 5:4 crop mode).

Loosing megapixels means that you also get higher noise level.

In DX crop mode you loose resolution AND image quality. The D800 sensor is similar to the D7000 sensor but much larger. In DX crop mode you'll just be getting the D7000 sensor.
