Crop Factor - Lens Equivalents, APS-C vs Full Frame

Greetings All,

Here is a question that has been pestering me for an answer. I shoot with a Nikon D3300 and several DX lenses. Two other of my lenses, the 50mm f1.8 and the 105mm f2.8 micro, are FX (full-frame) lenses. I understand that on my DX crop sensor camera the 50mm translates to 75mm and the 105mm translates to 157.5mm.

I am considering a full-frame Nikon, the D610 which has a 24MP sensor and the D810 which has a 36MP sensor.

On the D610 the 50mm has a field of view of 50mm (vs 75mm on the D3300) and the 105mm has a field of view of 105mm (vs 157.5mm on the D3300). Is it the same on the D810, which has a 36MP sensor, as it is on the D610?

Many Thanks!

Ken
