A5100 and FE 70-300mm

I have an RX100 Mark 1 I rarely use anymore.  A friend wants to trade me for an A5100 body.

I don't know that I have much use for the 5100 either, but I had one thought.  I could pair it with my FE 70-300mm to get an effective 450mm reach at 24 megapixels, correct?  I can shoot my A7r in APS-C mode with this lens and get to 450mm, but it drops to around 15 megapixels because it's effectively a crop.

Does my math make sense here?  I wouldn't use this combo often, but it does intrigue me.
