Technically yes, but consider this example - A 85mm f1.4 will has more DoF on DX camera than on FX camera for a headshot. Why? With DX, you have to step back few feet, thus increasing DoF. Same lens(aperture), different DoF(and prospective).

53 1.0 DX is equivalent to 85 1.4 FX. They make the same aperture diameter (53mm) and have the same perspective/field of view, so they are equivalent.
